Since the camera is shooting into the privacy of your house (your own bedrooms) and your activities on your own property, that is referred to as eavesdropping. Usually this is a neighbor that does it wherein law enforcement can obtain a search warrant for such cameras. If you fear that the removal of the cameras will cause violence to you, you may want to notify the police of the activity to make a report. You can also seek an injunction in civil court requiring the tenant to take out the camera. Further, it could be considered trespassing on your property. Also, if this is a month to month lease, or at the end of the lease, you can not renew it and give notice to the tenant to vacate the premises. We can discuss more if you would want to do so.
