I am 22 and live with my parents but am planning to move out soon. My parents are uncooperative with preparing me for this stuff (they have refused to take me to get my driver's license), but circumstances may soon force to leave them, so I'm evaluating options.
I have a part-time work-from-home job (paid internship) and a couple thousand dollars, so I'm expecting that I can find a nearby place that I can afford at least for long enough to get more income. The main thing I'm worried about is legal barriers I don't know about - since my parents are not cooperating, I have no idea what to expect.
I do not have any sort of insurance and hope it won't be required. My research is finding that health insurance is not mandatory except in a few states (not mine), and renter's insurance is cheap enough to be insignificant (I'm seeing like $20/month) even if I do end up needing it. I think auto insurance is mandatory but I won't need it because I won't be owning a car (if I need a car to get to the place I rent, I'm planning on Uber or similar).
I do have a checking account and debit card (as well as a saving account).
So just to make sure, are there any legal obstacles to me just moving out and renting an appartment without cooperation from my parents?
