Under the Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution, any search that’s conducted without a warrant is pretty much considered unreasonable, and therefore unlawful, unless there are defined circumstances that can exist that will allow them to conduct that search. But in 90% of the cases, those circumstances don’t exist absent some sort of consent that’s given by the person that owns the property, or that’s present when the search is conducted. So absent consent or some other very specific, narrowly defined exception there must always be a warrant for a search.
