Here are some tips:
The Fourth Amendment to the US Constitution protects your right against unreasonable searches and seizures, especially when the police search your home. There are some general principles that every homeowner or occupant should know about when it comes to searches and seizures.

If police come to your door and you don’t need their help, you can simply decline to answer. They cannot come into your home without a search warrant. Even if the police have probable cause, they cannot come in your home without a search warrant. You might even be a suspect in a criminal investigation. In such a case you should remain silent — except to say “Officer, I can’t let you inside without a search warrant.” Following such an encounter, you should immediately contact a lawyer before speaking to police again.

When a Warrant Isn’t Needed

Despite the general rule, the police may enter and search your home, or even seize evidence of a crime or illegal items (“contraband”), like drugs, without a warrant under certain circumstances:

Consent: If you’re the homeowner and the police ask if they can search the house and you agree, they can search the home without a warrant. Generally, children and minors can’t give consent to search. Also, if you have a roommate, she may give the police permission to search the common areas of your house, like the kitchen, but she can’t give consent to search your private living space, such as your bedroom. Once consent is given, anything they find in your home can be used against you and you can’t challenge the legality of the search and seizure

Search incident to arrest: If you are being arrested, the police may search you and the immediate surrounding for weapons, contraband, and even make a “protective sweep” of the house to make sure there’s no one there that poses a threat to the officers or other persons in the house

Exigent circumstances: These are situations where there’s no time to get a warrant because there’s an immediate threat or danger of someone getting hurt or the destruction of evidence. For example, if the police make arrest in the front yard and the homeowner is alerted to their presence, the police may enter the home if they have a reasonable belief that the homeowner is destroying evidence or poses a threat to the officers’ safety.
