Michael: The situation that you describe orders on invasion of privacy, as well as a breach of the terms of the lease calling for "quiet enjoyment". I don't know what the inspection clause in your lease calls for, so this is somewhat of a gas but I think you have the right to set specific times for the landlord to conduct periodic inspections. If the landlord is staging pictures that make it look like you are breaching your lease agreement, then you have the right to insist that you be present when the inspections are made.
