Did you have a legitimate expectation of privacy?

If the police carry out a search, there are steps that must be followed. Typically, they need to have probable cause -- they have a reasonable suspicion that a crime happened -- and they need to get a warrant from a judge.

The real estate transaction process is complex, and without guidance, it can result in complex problems.
