What Are Landlord Rights To Access Property After A Lease?

Landlord should be aware of his or her rights after their property has been occupied. This is vital because once a tenant occupies a property the landlord rights with regards to property access are limited to legitimate purposes. The tenant has the right to enjoy the property in absolute calmness and therefore landlord must respect tenant privacy. Lets look at the landlord rights to access property after tenant occupancy.

The landlord can inspect property to find out how well it is maintained. Usually, details of inspection are mentioned in the written rental agreement. The procedure of inspection and tenant notification for inspection will be outlined here. In case, there is no written agreement, the landlord must give the tenant notice of inspection, at least 24 hours prior to inspection. The notice must specify the date and time of inspection. The landlord does not have the right to check the property unannounced or visit the property when the tenant is absent.

In the case of repairs, the landlord has the right to enter the property to make the repairs for which he or she is legally obligated to do so, provided adequate notice is given to the tenant on the same. The tenant cannot prevent the landlord or his agents from carrying out such repair work and any attempt to do so is illegal and the landlord can evict them for the same. It is better to have the procedure for accessing property for repairs laid out n the tenant agreement so that disputes can be prevented.

It is to be noted that the only time that the landlord can access the property is when there is a real emergency such as a fire or a gas leak, which can cause harms to others or to neighboring property. It is necessary to adhere to landlord rights on property after tenancy so that tenant is not disturbed unnecessarily and that property access by landlord is done only when it is essential.

Chris is writing to share articles on topics like Landlord and Landlord Tenant. Brightstone Landlords are offering a bad Tenant eviction service in the UK. Basically the lawyers will act and have the non paying tenant evicted from the property. Visit us to read more details.

Police Seize (Steal) Woman’s Phone After She Records Violent Arrest – Portland Oregon

Police Seize (Steal) Woman's Phone After She Records Violent Arrest - Portland Oregon

PORTLAND, Ore. – According to the Gresham Police Department, a police officer who snatched a cellphone from a woman recording officers making an arrest was acting quickly to keep potential video evidence of a crime from being erased.

Carrie Medina considers herself a police watchdog and has a history of recording police making arrests.

Minutes after she began recording, the Gresham transit officer can be seen in the video walking over and demanding to see her phone so he can check for evidence.

On the video, Medina questions the officer’s request, but he tells her he doesn’t need a subpoena to search her phone for evidence of a crime.

“Ma’am, do you want to hand me the phone or would you like to show it to me?” the officer asks.

“I don’t want to show you …,” Medina begins to respond. At that point the officer snatches the phone from her while it is still recording.

“I was not there to interfere, I was not there to intervene, I was not there to yell at them. I was just there to quietly watch,” Medina said later during an interview. “He assaulted me. It was an illegal seizure of my property. It was a violation of my First Amendment right to be able to film. It was a violation of my Fourth Amendment right – the seizure and illegal search of my property.”

Gresham police say their officer didn’t seize her phone because he was unhappy that she was recording. They say he seized the phone because he was trying to protect video evidence he thought might be on the phone of the arrest he just made.

“The actual arrest itself was a crime of resist arrest,” said Gresham Police Department spokesman Lt. Claudio Grandjean. “She’s videotaping, the officer didn’t know how much she got of the actual resist arrest, but there’s potentially evidence of that on the video. That’s what he was after was that video. She made it clear she wasn’t going to hand it over.”

Gresham police say officers don’t need a warrant to seize the phone when they feel the evidence on it is in jeopardy of being erased, but they would need a warrant to actually look at the phone’s contents without the owner’s consent.

“In this case, all it takes is – delete – and the evidence is gone, and especially if someone is (backing away) – I’m not going to give you that – you’re real close to losing evidence,” Grandjean said.

In this case the law appears to be on the police officer’s side. The case is different than some previous cases where police have seized citizen’s cellphones, even putting a man in jail for recording in public, only later to admit they were wrong.

In those previous cases, police officers have seized cellphones, because they believed the act of recording itself was a crime.

In 2008 Beaverton police not only took Hao Vang’s phone he spent a night in jail after he took video of his friend being arrested.

Police said he violated Oregon law that says you can’t record someone’s audio without notifying them. But Beaverton ended up paying Vang for unjust treatment. Gresham police say that was a different circumstance.

“The courts have found that holding the phone up like this is enough notification,” Grandjean said. “You’ve told people, we all know what they’re doing so you have that situation. In this situation you have somebody recording evidence of a crime.”

Legal experts say there would be a problem in another scenario where an officer seizes a phone to cover up his own misbehavior.

So what are your rights in these situations?

The American Civil Liberties Union says that in public spaces, you have the right to photograph anything that is in plain view.

Police cannot delete your photographs or video, but this does not give you the right to violate other laws or interfere with crime scenes.

How to clear your record after you’ve done your time for a criminal offense

http://www.chastainelaw.com (transcribed from Q&A video interview with Michael Chastaine, criminal attorney in Folsom, CA www.chastainelaw.com)
Our next question is for those who have already paid for their crime and want to know how to get their record cleared.
Michael, is that possible and if so, how do they go about it?
In California, in most circumstances, it is. Depending on what you’ve been convicted of and what actually happened. If you were granted probation and completed probation, you can, in most circumstances, you can have the case dismissed and have the record expunged. If you were convicted of a felony after a certain period of time have a certificate of rehabiliation. These things are extremely important in cleaning up your record, for employment purposes and for other purposes as well. Licensing and that sort of thing as well. And if you have been convicted ofa sex offense and you have to register in some circumstances, depending on what you’ve been convicted of, certificate of rehabilitation may relieve that duty to have to register for the rest of your life. And in some circumstances, if you were on the Megan’s law website, we can help you get off. There are ways to do that in certain cases. And the only way to know the answer to any of those questions is to talk to somebody who actually has experience in that field, which we do.
So in other words, what people don’t know about getting their case dismissed could have repercussions for the rest of their life.
Absolutely, our philosophy is that your case isn’t over until it’s dismissed. And we talk to our clients if they are going to suffer a conviction about the light at the end of the tunnel, the ability to have the case dismissed down the road if they’re going to be eligible for that. And we make sure that we contact our clients even if it’s several years down the road to discuss, is it time to have probation terminated? can we do that early? can we have the case dismissed? has enough time passed so we can do a certificate of rehabiliation? Because it’s extremely important, the fact that you suffered a conviction in the past doesn’t mean you have to be saddled with it for the rest of your life.
