Tenants are sometimes at the mercy of unscrupulous landlords, unless they have access to good information and resources. For example the Fair Credit Reporting Act now includes tenant's rights. The Act has changed significantly and now imposes requirements on what landlords can say about you when they are contacted for a reference.
Should you sign a long-term lease? Should you ever consider a rent with option to buy? What is a landlord's right of entry? Can you have a pet? How much security deposit does your state law allow? Where must it be kept? How do you get it back?
Tenants need RHOL because information has value and we have lots of it.
