Landlord and Tenant

The Pennsylvania Code provides certain rights and protections for landlords and tenants alike.  The goal is to ensure that tenants are provided with a safe and livable residence, and that the landlord be compensated for providing and maintaining that residence.  Unfortunately, it doesn't always work out that way.  If you are experiencing a landlord/tenant issue, contact us today to schedule a consultation.

 

Tenant's Rights:

Every tenant has a right to the use and enjoyment of a livable dwelling.  It is the landlord's duty to maintain the property in a livable condition, and to provide the vital services necessary for everyday life.  If the landlord fails to meet that duty, the tenant may have legal recourse against him or her.  If you believe your landlord has failed to appropriately take care of your residence, we may be able to help you resolve your landlord/tenant issue.

 

Landlord's Rights:

Landlords are entitled to prompt payment of rent from their tenants.  Failure to pay rent may result in eviction from the premises.  Tenants who stay beyond eviction may be subject to lockout and seizure of personal property.  If you are experiencing a problem tenant, we can present you with your legal options to help you quickly resolve the issue.
