There are a couple indoor surveillance cameras in each section of our building. I'm not sure if they're switched on. I have my doubts.

Anyway, if they are indeed functional, is there any requirement for the estate agent who rents out the building to have us consent to be videographed in our day to day lives?

Yea. The two hallways and the kitchen and living room.

The last two I don't mind too much but don't care for the hallways as I don't like the idea of video of me with my towel exiting the bathroom.

Then they are well within their rights as long as they comply with data protection.

Put some clothes on if you don't want to be seen in a towel.

Are interior hallways always within each section really considered the type of common area where landlords can put such cameras? If it were an apartment building, I could appreciate the hallways outside the apartment but inside feels rather invasive. Especially as it wasn't pointed out previously.

They common areas for all the tenants. It is more than likely that they are not monitored and the videos would only be viewed if there was a problem.

I don't think there is a legal obligation to point them out but for best practice I think they should have been.
