We were just informed that our landlord will be here in two days to do a "Photo Inspection"...never in my life---and I have lived in many many places---have I EVER had someone want to do this kind of inspection. And I will say...I am not hiding ANYTHING--We do not have bugs--I am a Clean Freak...and it just seems to me that this is a little intrusive. I feel really funny about someone having pictures of all my stuff. And in saying THAT. I would think we would have the right to ask for copies of all the pictures...but whose to Say OR KNOW..what pictures they may leave OUT..and not give us. This whole thing is just weird.. I do believe there is SOMETHING UP!!!. and I have also Read that it is NOT legal for an OWNER to ask her Management team to take pictures of the property if THE OWNER can not do the inspection themselves. there are so many ways now a days to "FIX" pictures..and Maybe I just don't TRUST anyone...but this Does NOT SEEM RIGHT! At ALL. a normal inspection YES! By all means..Come once a week if ya want to..The "PICTURES" bother me.

Call landlord tenant attorney. You can find someone on avvo I think they do not have a right to take pictures without your permission. It is after all your apartment. They can inspect it but not take pictures. However, call attorney and ask. Many attorneys will just answer you over the phone.

This sounds like a lawsuit has been filed. I don't think Attorneys are involved in refinances/loans.

Did you ever consider that since "attorneys" are requesting pictures...one of your fellow tenants has brought a lawsuit against the owner for habitability issues? Or one of the owners has registered a complaint with a housing authority against the owner. He may have hired an attorney to defend him.

The owner's insurance co may be trying to provide proof that the building is well kept and habitable...inside and out.
