Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question, conduct and prepare your response.
Unfortunately it is legal here in Texas.
Texas's wiretapping law is a "one-party consent" law. Texas makes it a crime to intercept or record any "wire, oral, or electronic communication" unless one party to the conversation consents.

So seller can tape in her home without your consent.You certainly consider telling the buyer to walk away from the deal if there was no agreement.I personally find this repulsive even though it is legal.Lesson learned tell client you will discuss it after you visit the property say nothing on site.I am so sorry you had this happen.
I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.Thanks again
