Real estate agent says clients used audio, video surveillance to eavesdrop on potential buyers.

Homebuyers should watch what they say during home viewings, according to an Ontario real estate agent who says two of her clients recently used cameras and microphones to eavesdrop on potential buyers.

Juliana Webster says the rules should be changed to force sellers to say if homes are under surveillance.

“When you go into a private home you don’t naturally expect [surveillance],” said Webster, who works in Hamilton.

Discussion

1) Is it true, or truly naive, to say “When you go into a private home you don’t naturally expect [surveillance]”?

2) Should there be a law to prevent surveillance in your own home during a home buying visit?
