Landlord-Tenant Law In Pennsylvania

When both parties conduct themselves appropriately, the relationship between landlord and tenant can be positive and mutually beneficial. When one party steps out of line, it can lead to disputes and legal action that require the help of a trusted attorney who understands landlord-tenant law in Pennsylvania.

At the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Evans in Waynesboro, we represent landlords and tenants in all real estate matters, including:

  • Writing, reviewing and negotiating leases
  • Filing landlord or tenant complaints
  • Rent disputes
  • Eviction notices
  • Appeals

We handle these matters with care, protecting our client's rights and preserving or quickly ending the landlord-tenant relationship as appropriate.

For Landlords

Many landlords have misunderstandings about their rights and obligations under Pennsylvania law. For example, landlords do have the right to use wage withholding to collect money for damage to rental property. However, they cannot use wage withholding to collect money for overdue rent. When you choose our law firm, we will educate you about the law and how it pertains to your case. We will help you fulfill your obligations and exercise your rights.

For Tenants

At our law firm, we can help tenants with a wide range of matters. We begin every case by counseling tenants about their rights and obligations. We will answer all questions you may have and address any concerns that arise during the process. We want tenants who have been the target of eviction actions to know that there are ways to stay in the property through an appeal, but these matters need to be handled carefully. We can help.
