Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Your friend's lender has the right to drive by the premises to inspect it. But, the lender does not have the right to enter the premises without permission. IF they have done this, they'd be trespassing.
The loan papers may say that your friend has agreed to this....but that'd be the only way that it would be possible.
What state is this in?
Ok. Thanks. I just wanted to look at the law to see if there was any special provision about foreclosures in PA that would allow for this....and I don't see any such thing.
Here's a good link you can read: http://www.grimlaw.com/pages/gbt-articles/the-foreclosure-process-in-pennsylvania
Thus, your friend should ask the lender to provide him with the authority (written/documented proof) they claim gives them the right to enter his property when the loan is in default.....before the foreclosure process starts.
