I allowed someone that I have had an issue with in the past to move in with me bc she was in a touch spot - it has only been two months and things are starting to become really bad. Unfortunately this time she is also on the lease because that was the only way she could move in. We (my boyfriend and I) have been having issues with her bringing sketchy people over, some of our things have come up missing, and now she is acting erratically like she was in our last house leading me to believe she is on drugs again - we have a 3 year old so I have expressed my concerns to her and every time she blows me off or says I'm harassing her. I recently had a domestic dispute (there was no violence and no charges pressed but in FL if a cop is called for a domestic dispute someone has to be taken) I am in the process of having this removed. But now that I have had this incident she is threatening me all the time with calling the cops if I so much as speak to her and calling the cops if she hears my child screaming or crying (he's 3 that's what he does). So I want to install a WiFi camera (to not drill holes) to make sure I have proof that I am not harassing/abusing my kid if she does call them.
As long as you don't do this surreptitiously, you have the right to install video recording equipment in common areas. However, if you are both on the lease, she probably has the right to remove them or unplug them or turn them off, provided she doesn't damage or destroy your property. Hopefully you learn your lesson this time about moving in with unreliable people.
