OREGON. My wife and I live in Clackamas County, Oregon. We have weekly card games where we invite friends over to play cards. My landlord approved of this until recently. She now claims she didnt realize it was a regular weekly event.
We rent a guest house behind her home. She now points a video camera from behind the window screen of her bedroom window 15 feet away directly into our front door. Our front door is in her back yard.
When the front door happens to be open, this peers into our bathroom and dressing room area, as well as the living room. Once when I returned from the store my wife had just come out of the bathroom nude to get dressed and was recorded without her consent (obviously). To make matters worse, the landlord has never provided the bathroom door installation as promised over a month ago, so there is no door at all to provide privacy.
We strongly feel that our landlord's action is quite outrageous and extrememly invasive of our personal privacy and deeply disturbs us (and our friends who visit).
Besides asking her to stop (which we've done to no avail), what are our options? We moved here as a temporary situation due to zero savings, and cannot afford to easily move just yet.
Please advise, do we have any options, or is she (our landlord) within her rights, as she claims, to continue videotaping us in this manner, into our private rental unit through the front door, at all hours of the day and night?
Thanks, in advance, for any and all help!
