22. Everybody does

You're right, but unfortunately what that really means is that "everybody" does. That is to say that "everybody" from the people that designed and built the place, to the people charged with maintaining it, as well as the residents that were resistant to paying for the needed repairs and upkeep. But because "buildings don't fall like that", "everybody" feels free to ignore problems, delay action, and otherwise dismiss valid concerns about these things. And don't kid yourself, that attitude affects the inspectors as well who are loath to declare a building unsafe or demand quick or immediate repairs to buildings.

It's the corollary to the person that keeps driving with the check engine light on. They do so because they believe the worst thing that will happen is that the engine won't start some day, not that it will burst into flames while they are driving.

It costs money to own things. And part of that cost is having insurance. What do ya wanna bet many of the people living in those remaining condos are uninsured?
