My mom's disabled and lives in government subsidies apartment building and I'm her personal caretaker through the state and is constantly they're taking care of her. Anyways, other tenants reported I'm living they're and she recieved a five day notices. These people watching me gives me a uncomfortable feeling like I'm not able to b visit my own mother. Is this a invasion of privacy

A: This does not appear to be a criminal or civil rights question. Does management know of your presence for care? Make sure your state status and length of visit complies with their rules. Then when a complaint is made by a neighbor they will be told they are wrong and your presence is allowed. HUD does have rules on occupancy and subsidy, especially if this is housing for the elderly, etc. Free speech applies. Invasion of privacy, maybe, but follow my advice and it should shut up the busybodies.
