The relationship between a landlord and a tenant can quickly become adversarial, particularly when a party violates the terms of a lease agreement. Our experienced attorneys provide assistance in all matters that may arise under the Pennsylvania Landlord and Tenant Act, including representing commercial and residential landlords, as well as tenants.
From lease disputes to rent collection and eviction, our attorneys have the knowledge and experience to handle any issue that may arise during a landlord and tenant relationship. These matters including self-help remedies for late payment, nonpayment of rent, eviction notices, and lease disputes.
Representation of Landlords
For many landlords, a landlord tenant dispute is a nuisance. We take the legal responsibility off of the client’s shoulders. Landlords seeking legal representation with tenant disputes and eviction proceedings need an attorney who is knowledgeable about Pennsylvania landlord tenant laws including:
- Rent non-payment issues
- Physical damages to rental unit or building
- Breach of a lease or other real estate contract
Representation of Tenants
We represent tenants in dealing and negotiating with current or prospective landlords. Property owners in the business of providing residential rental housing should strive to meet high standards in maintaining their property and professionally interacting with their tenants. Pennsylvania laws provide tenants with rights and protections related to:
- Property conditions
- Wrongful evictions
- Refund of rental deposits
For commercial tenants, a landlord tenant dispute threatens their businesses, and requires immediate and thoughtful attention which one of our experienced attorneys can provide.
