Private Investigations and Personal Security/Unwanted home camaras


My ex to be husband put cameras on a building we have like a 3 car garage behind the main house that I live in with my son alone. He makes cabinets in part of the building  and I breed  yorkies in the other part.i don't want the camaras there because I feel he is stalking me when I walk my dogs he don't with me no more going through a bad divorce. We both own the property but I live in the main house. Can I take them down or hummer them down because he refuse to take them down but I live there and don't want them what can I Do???

Remember, I am NOT giving you legal advice. For that, you will need to contact a local attorney.

My opinion is that so long as both of you are on the deed, either one of you can do whatever you want to the property, without the permission of the other, unless there has been some court order to the contrary.

You can take them down, paint the lens black, disconnect them or whatever, and he can come along the next day and reverse what you did! However, if you disposed of the cameras he would need to purchase new ones again and that can become expensive! You take them down and he replaces them. No cost to you, but costs to him.

Why not ask him to look at the monitors or at a video, and work it out with him to swing the cameras away from you, to your satisfaction? That would make more sense and be less hostile as well. If there was a camera that still was of concern after it had be swung away, then that one could be relocated. (You could also call in an independent video person to oversee the repositioning, which would give you a witness for the future if you needed it).

It would be in everyone's best interest to attempt to work out a compromise by adjusting the filed of view, taking care that he did not swing them back when you were not aware.

In a nutshell: Yes, you can take them down, Yes, he can replace them but compromising on a solution would be the most beneficial solution to both of you.
