What are the laws pertaining to Private Property Entrance in Broward county. I would liket to know if anyone (law enforcement, condo association staff, state employees, etc, have freely access to my property at any time or do they need to give me a notice first. Please explain.
My name isXXXXX a licensed attorney. Glad to try and help out.
Sure sorry for your circumstances, truly. My heart goes out to you.
Accordingly, please know it brings me no joy whatsoever to share the following news with you. I would love to say otherwise, but that just isn't the case. Yes, certain folks do have access under certain conditions, pursuant to the following three classifications: (1) invitees, those folks you ask to come onto your property, such as dinner guests; (2) licensees, people whom you didn't invite onto your property and may wish weren't there for whom the law does give such a right, including law enforcement, utility meter readers, housing association employees, surveyors and inspectors; and (3) trespassers, those whom you didn't invite and for whom the law doesn't provide any protection, such as burglars, robbers, graffiti sprayers and stalkers.
I have spoken speak candidly rather than doing you the disservice of lying or misleading you. I didn't enact the law, and personally I often disagree with it, but nevertheless we're all stuck with it.
I am sorry.
If you have a follow-up question or need clarification, please just say the word by using "reply" to reach me.
I truly hope all works out for you.
Thanks so much for an excellent reply, only one quick question, if no one is home do all parties specify on your email have the right to enter my property? Thanks for your valuable input. Best regards, Patricia
