    Post: Consent to search a home

    Posted by Daynn on 6/19/11

    Does the homeowner have to give the police permission to
    search a house, or can another member of the household who
    is not on the lease give consent? My bf ws falsely arrested
    for domestic violence and ordered not to have contact with
    me. The following day he came to get his things, and the
    cops stopped by to check in. He told them I was at work, so
    they left but then came back because the place I work was
    already closed. I assume he gave them permission to search
    the house and they found me and arrested him. My mom is the
    only one on the lease. Is this legal? Did the fact that my
    work closed give them probable cause?
