I'm a landlord in Ma and I want to put in surveillance cameras with voice recording in common areas/hallways. Does anyone know if it is legal? Because my tenants are violating my noise policy and every time I ask they denied it.
If I am not mistake, I believe you may install cameras in common areas such as hallways and even exterior. I would double check the laws in your state to be sure.
Recording audio without your tenant's permission is a crime. There are electronic devices that alert for high decibel readings, but don't record voices. I think that's what you'll need to get for proof of excess noise.
