Every state has different rules on landlords and tenants. The relationship between a landlord and tenant is especially sour in large cities like Philadelphia. As a general matter, the landlord must communicate with the tenant. The tenant, likewise, must communicate with the landlord if there is a problem with the rental property. Landlords also have a duty to provide a space that is inhabitable and free of hazards.
An eviction usually occurs when the tenant fails to meet their responsibility of paying rent. A landlord may also seek to evict you if you are loud, your behavior is affecting the other tenants, or you are causing irreparable damage to the property. A landlord may evict a tenant. They must follow specific rules to avoid facing a legal challenge to the eviction. Neither a landlord nor a tenant can break a signed lease unless the lease contract explicitly allows it, the law permits it, or your landlord consents to release you from the leasing contract.
