Default Renting a room and inspections?

When renting a room at a house, can POs inspect areas off limits to the tenant (me)
Situation: found a rental studio in a nice home with a private entrance. The owners don't mind the probation but I am only authorized use of that studio from the private entrance. They certainly don't want a p.o. stomping around their house at random times. Would the p.o. require inspection of the attached home even though I am using just that room and the attaching door is locked from the other side?

The answer will depend on what your PO decides. I hope you can find out beforehand, and that your landlord's house, that you don't have access to, will not be subject to random searches by your PO.

My guess is that the PO won't have access, but if the landlord has to argue/fight about it, they probably won't be willing to have you as a tenant.

She already accepted me and has no problem with my situation, she just has a sick mother with advanced dementia that lives with her and intrusion wouldn't be conducive to her health.

It's great that you found someone willing to work with your situation. I don't know how your PO is but maybe if you explained the landlord's situation, they could meet & your PO could be reassured that only your personal space needs to be available for access. Keeping fingers crossed that it works out.

When my hub finally found a place to parole to, the room he was renting was a bit like you describe.
Only difference was he would have to go inside the home to use the bathroom/shower.
His parole agent at the time did not go into that area of the house and just would inspect his *room* so Im guessing that since you have no access to the main home, it wouldnt be a problem.

If your living quarters is separate by a locked door from the main house, your probation officer would not need to enter the main house.
If you must enter the main house to use the bathroom, could be an issue.
Work with your P.O. explain some of the reasons why your land lord doesn't want the traffic in her house some are understanding.
