In California, probationers often waive, or give up, their 4th amendment right against unreasonable search and seizure when they are placed on probation. If a probationer is only your guest (for instance, he came over to watch Monday Night Football), the police need a warrant to enter your house. If the probationer is living at the location, then his fourth amendment waiver would allow the police to search him and his new household.
