NY: Tenants can consent to a rental property inspection

In a rental property inspection, the tenants consented, and that was constitutionally sufficient. Town of Huntington v. CFLNYNY, LLC, 2021 NY Slip Op 50009(U), 2021 N.Y. Misc. LEXIS 27 (Suffolk Co. Jan. 7, 2021).*

There was probable cause for a stop for the license plate not being illuminated, and reasonable suspicion developed for continuing past the traffic stop. “We agree with County Court that, taken together, the trooper’s observations of defendant engaging in behaviors commonly seen in outdoor drug transactions at a location known for such activity, his ‘slow roll response’ and furtive movements after the trooper initiated the stop and his evasive, inconsistent answers to the trooper’s questions created a founded suspicion that criminal activity was afoot …” People v. Blandford, 2021 NY Slip Op 00058, 2021 N.Y. App. Div. LEXIS 85 (3d Dept. Jan. 7, 2021).*
