Have questions about Landlord/Tenant Law in Pennsylvania?
Whether you are a landlord leasing residential or commercial property or a tenant renting a property, you will have to adhere to the terms of the lease you sign. Therefore, it is important that you carefully read and understand the terms of your lease before you sign it. You may want to contact a Landlord/Tenant attorney to review the lease beforehand.
Pennsylvania is governed by the Landlord Tenant Act of 1951. Landlords and tenants all have certain rights and basic obligations but once you have signed a lease, it can be difficult to get out of it. You should also note that there are state and federal anti-discrimination laws that prohibit restricting who can rent a property.
