I just saw a woman taking photos of my house from the street. When I asked who she was and why she was taking photos, she said she is a real estate broker and they get requests from different entities such as insurance companies for photos. I asked who requested them and why; she could not provide the information. I asked her not to take any more photos until she could provide me with the information.
unfortunately, the outside of your home is not subject to any privacy laws. As long as she does not take pictures inside of windows she is not violating any privacy laws.
Anyone can take pictures of your home, however, if someone is trying to use a telephoto lens to see inside your home or yard surrounded by a fence where you have an expectation of privacy, call the police.
No, you don't have a right to such information. The outside of your home is not private. Anyone can take pictures of it, as long as they do not trespass on your property to do so.
