We have a Modern Home in CA. we keep getting inquiries about "filming" in the house...I suspect these are from the adult industry and would like to add somehting in our contract to elimite this...any thoughts on proper verbage...
FILMING & PHOTOGRAPHY - While taking videos and photographs for personal use of family vacation events is permissible, filming and photography for commercial use is strictly prohibited.
Below is the general law but it can vary from state to state and location to location.
Property owners may legally prohibit photography on their premises but have no right to prohibit others from photographing their property from other locations. Whether you need permission from a property owners while on their premises depends on the circumstances. In any case, when a property owner tells you not to take photographs while you are on the premises you are legally obligated to honor the request.
I just posted a similar question on the site then saw Renee's post. We too have been getting similar requests and have ignored all of them. I was assuming it was a scam or a porno shoot. We do have a nice property and two of the requests came from what appeared to be Playboy magazine. We have never bothered to put anything in the contract about film shoots as if they say it up front, we just tell them we don't allow it.
