  • If someone lets them in they can but if no one is home they can't get in. So yes they can but have to be invited in by someone.

  • I'm not sure I made sense. "invited in" might have been confusing. Someone has to open the door to them but you yourself do not have to be there. My kids opened the door and let them in and I wasn't there. They called me to come home from work. They stayed until I got there.

  • This lady I know had a really nasty dirty house, and a sherriff was dispatched to check on the child and no on was home, it was a trailer house, not that has anything to do with it except-- there was cement blocks around the yard from when it was set up and the sheriff took a block and stood on it and look through the windows and took pictures and say how nasty it was. Then waited till some one was home and came back with more cops and CPS and took her kid away and she never got it back.

  • Oh wow, My house is not nasty or anything like that. Maybe clutter but not nasty. I have a ton of clothes on my bedroom floor where I am getting ready to throw them away ( goodwill) . I felt uneasy about having company that I didnt invite over with out a notice. Wasnt sure if they can just walk in with out anyone being home.

  • Um that would be breaking and entering in any ones book. If someone invites them in then they can look around, but without a warrant even if you are home you do not have to let them in.
