When To Use The Pennsylvania 30 Day Notice To Quit

The Pennsylvania 30 Day Notice To Quit is the first step in evicting a problem tenant. Landlords may only use this notice for a lease agreement that lasts for one year or more. This notice may only be given when a tenant has violated their lease agreement for reasons other than non-payment of rent. Landlords may use a different form if the tenant has not paid their rent.

    This form can be used for lease violations such as:
  • Overcrowding at the property,
  • Not following health and safety regulations,
  • Having unauthorized pets,
  • Participating in illegal activity.

It is important to note that this notice is used to tell the tenant that their lease has been terminated because of the violation. This notice does not give the tenant the opportunity to cure the violation. They must leave the property within 30 days of receiving the notice.

Timing Is Important

It is important in the eviction process for the landlord to wait the 30-day period after delivering the notice before taking further action. This 30 day compliance period allows the tenant the opportunity to vacate the property before the landlord is able to file for a hearing in court to evict the tenant.

Landlords can serve this notice the tenant directly, post it on the door of the property or leave it with another responsible resident that lives with the tenant in question.
