My x husband has full custodial custody of my daughter. I just bought a house and it's her weekend to come. He wants to come inside my house and look around and on my property. Says any responsible adult would do the same thing.
The responsible adult on your custodial time is you. He has no right to enter your house.
Please note that In answering your question I am only giving general legal information and am not representing you or giving legal advice.

While you dion't have to, wouldn't it be a wonderful gesture of constructive co-parenting (something your daughter will remember as a positive interaction)? This is a case where the right answer (which is let him) is different than the strict legal answer (which is it's up to you).
If my answer does help you, please consider marking it helpful, or a best answer. In answering your question I am basing my answer on the limited information here, and more information is likely needed to properly and fully answer, but hopefully the answer helps. Please know that in answering I am not your lawyer and am only providing general information. To retain a lawyer you need to enter into a written retainer with the lawyer (and you have not hired me simply because I answered something here). AVVO has useful tools to contact the lawyers you see on AVVO. Please be aware I am licensed only in Georgia, so an answer in another state may be different. You should not rely on online questions as a final legal answer or a "how to" and need to sit down with a lawyer to get an answer to safely rely on. Many legal cases have vital deadlines that you may miss with delay, so please be aware of that. Now here's the "legalese" we lawyers need to add: Please do not construe anything here to make you a client of Glen Ashman.

You are no longer married to this man. The real question here involves the concerns of your ex. Does he want to know the location where you live for legitimate reasons? Such as the address and the location where you will be visiting with your daughter? Or is he wanting to pry into your living arrangements under the guise of a safety inspection? If you believe his concerns are legit, let him into your home. If not, just say no.
