He has not lived with me he was not a tenant and I have broken it off with him and it's my apartment it is my privacy.How long has your boyfriend lived with you in your apartment?
I would worry about your boyfriend and/or the apartment manager pursuing a legal action against you.
There are invasion of privacy civil actions that could be considered (intrusion upon a person's seclusion, public disclosure of private facts) and audio recording laws that might have been violated, and an "invasive visual recording" that can lead to a criminal action.
If your boyfriend has not established tenancy, you can kick him out.
You cannot video or audio record surreptitiously if to do so violates privacy laws.He has not lived with me he was not a tenant and I have broken it off with him and it's my apartment it is my privacy.
I agree that the facts of the recording (the where, the what, audio/video) matter.Spot84 should discuss this with an attorney in Texas. I'm not a Texas attorney, but I am not as sure as some of the other posters seem to be that Spot has done anything wrong. She has a right to have security cameras in her residence. We don't know where the camera covered. If it covered the bed, that is a harder sell. If the living room or kitchen, then there is a reasonable argument that she didn't intend to invade the privacy of others when they chose to have sex on the sofa or kitchen table.
But regardless, I've have a talk with the apartment manager's boss.
I agree that it potentially could open Spot up to a greater risk of being sued or a police complaint filed against her.I disagree about reporting the matter to the employer. That seems fraught with risk and has few, possibly zero upsides.
Boyfriends/spouses/partners can't be "stolen." It was his choice...... I can't trust her to come into my home for inspections or whatever and not steal or sleep with my boyfriend.
That is where disclosing the manager's actions could help.Boyfriends/spouses/partners can't be "stolen." It was his choice.
Keep in mind: if you have a lease the LL may not be inclined to let you out of it without penalty.
The manager has access to the apartment. I suspect Spot doesn't have a whole lot of trust in the manager right now.Why would you even think about wanting to do anything against the manager?
Be glad you found about your boyfriend's true colors and break up with him.
Look for another place to live.
