    Default passive

    Are these sentences correct:

    1-This house has been entered since we left it. (Meaning: Somebody has entered this house since we left it.)
    2-This house has been gone into since we left it.

    3-This house has been entered through the back door.
    4-This house has been gone into through the back door.
