A new breed of novice, unwilling, nonprofessional landlord has entered the arena, and these landlords are often ill-equipped for the legal challenges when dealing with tenants and the particular lease provisions that should be in all residential leases.
Similarly, a new breed of former home owners are becoming unwilling, novice tenants, often after having been homeowners for many years. These tenants are often unprepared for the new rental market and the legal challenges involved in Pennsylvania's Landlord and Tenant Act, if they even had rented in Pennsylvania at all.
The Landlord-Tenant attorneys at Amori & Associates are well-versed in these issues. Landlords need a solid lease that complies with Pennsylvania law, particularly where it comes to security deposits, child restrictions, household size restrictions and pets. Tenants need to understand their rights and responsibilities, particularly where they involve issues of habitability such as property maintenance, heating and hot water.
If you are a landlord, or about to become a landlord, or if you are a tenant, or about to become a tenant, the attorneys at Amori & Associates are ready to assist you with your needs.
