I love this feature as an easy/fast/accurate way to take notes when asking the owner/borrower about upgrades to their property. However, I'm concerned that I may be breaking California law? (It's a "two-party" state and I have not been asking if it's okay to record the conversations). It seems that the deciding factor is if the conversation is confidential, or not?

Suggest that you ask an attorney

Tennessee is one party consent, i use the record feature when the borrower starts to get a little excited, or insulting, or combative. Made an appointment today and the first thing out of his mouth was "i hope you are better than the last son of a ***** who came out". Yes, i will record that one. The CA law would seem to be 2 party, so maybe ask permission if its okay to record first.
