Actually laws do protect private domain of a rental. It's the same reason the apartment companies themselves/landlords are not allowed to enter the apartment without your expressed consent.

They don't need consent, they just need to give notice.

The point is those laws are the implementation of the intent behind the Fourth Amendment, and it's strange that we don't have other laws which implement the full intent of the Fourth Amendment with respect to private communication.
