Pennsylvania Rental Agreement Forms and Landlord Resources

Every state has a few absurd laws on the books and Pennsylvania is certainly no exception. One example is the ridiculous law that states, “All fire hydrants must be checked one hour before all fires.’ Such laws cannot be upheld and are generally ignored. Pennsylvania landlord-tenant laws on the other hand, cannot be ignored. Landlords and property managers in PA are expected to be knowledgeable of the landlord-tenant laws and to uphold them. For this reason, we provide Pennsylvania landlords and property managers with the tools and resources necessary to stay on top of the laws as they continue to change. For example, PA landlords and property managers need to know that, “beginning with the second and each subsequent year of a lease, or during any renewal after the expiration of 2 years of tenancy, any security deposit in excess of one month together with interest shall be returned to the tenant. Interest must be paid each year on the security deposit on all deposits held over two years.”

Our state assist provides the confidence landlords and property managers need in their leases to ensure compliance with Pennsylvania residential renting laws. Our state mandated and vast selection of relevant rental forms help to ensure highly organized and effective management. When in need of tenant screening services, we offer a comprehensive screening. Sometimes landlords want feedback from their peers which they can get by posting their questions on our FORUM page. Your questions will be answered by seasoned property managers, landlords or attorneys who frequent the forum page.

If you’re ever in need of a contractor, you don’t have to leave our site because we offer a list of contractors under our resources category as well. And, for those times when you may have to consult in person with an attorney, just visit our Pennsylvania directory of attorneys found on the resource page.

My Tenant Backed Out of the Lease - Now What?
Posted December 22, 2016
You gathered a pile of applications for your rental property. You narrowed it to several finalists and, after screening a few backgrounds, you finally settled on the best candidate for your next tenant. Now, that tenant is backing out of the lease at the very last minute. What should you do, besides tearing your hair out? It depends on whether or not the tenant signed your lease agreement, and whether you obtained a Hold Deposit. Also, did your lease include an Early Termination clause? Know the answers to these questions before reading further - they matter!

Why Does Eviction Take So Long?
Posted December 13, 2016
You want your tenants out and you want them out today. You have been more than patient, your tenants are taking advantage of you, and things are only going to get worse. So, why can't you just kick them out immediately? Wouldn't any judge understand that eviction is appropriate under these typical scenarios? • Tenants haven't paid rent in months. • Tenants let other people move in and never told you or asked permission. • The last time tenants let you in to inspect, you saw the unit was trashed. These examples – among many others – are lease violations and landlords do not have to put up with them. And, yes, action is definitely called for.
