First, I would get an inexpensive hidden camera containing SD card (16GB or 32GB recommended) that records motion for 30 seconds when its infrared sensor is triggered. (SmartHome.com and other security vendors have some decent deals at under $200.)Next, you need to know what chemicals the landlord plans on treating your mattress with! You might research natural alternatives (i.e. pure Neem oil comes to mind) and offer to treat the mattress yourself.Finally, if you have valuable collectibles on display, renters and even homeowners using cleaning services should secure valuable collectibles in locking shatterproof glass display cases to curtail smash and grab incidents. Fine art can be secured with security hardware bolted to the back of frames and secured by strong cable to hardware attached to wall beams. Of course, hidden cameras will assist in filing police reports necessary to activate theft insurance on property (and enjoy the satisfaction of prosecuting sticky fingers).Your dilemma is one reason I'm a homeowner of a single-family house (not a condo which could experience similar privacy woes to renters). Title to a plot of land and dwelling creates a "firewall" against the outside world (and sidesteps the problem of "helpful" landlords). I also believe that land in desirable regions is finite (since it rests on a horizontal axis of a sphere with finite surface area, which everybody forgets when they treat real estate as if it was mass produced Walmart merchandise).
