Why do people rent

Without knowing their state landlord tenant laws? Have you read your state laws? Did you read every word on your lease?

Why be ignorant about your rights?

It's so frustrating after reading the eviction post how many people don't know their own state laws or that the laws vary from state to state.

I did. When i was 18, I'd go on the state website and read all the landlord and tenant laws just for the sake of wanting to. It helped me a lot when i started renting.

Honesly I have never read the laws, but we have never had an issue with paying or our landlord. I probably should read it just in case.

I'm currently renting to save money to buy a house cash out. We got rid of all the payments and loans, downsized, and learned to live simple. We are 4 years away :)

Why do people use car seats without reading the manual or understanding the laws? Why do people use lawn mowers as hedge trimmers? People don't think of it and some people are stupid as well.

I read my whole lease, but I've not read the state laws in every state where I've rented. Or in any state where I've rented. Idk, I pay my rent on time (early if they accept it) and always leave a place in equal or better shape than when I moved in. I've always gotten my deposits back and never had trouble other than some LLs not being prompt about fixing minor issues.
