Eviction Law Attorney Philadelphia

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Illegal For The Landlord To Do?

First, the landlord must follow the above procedure to give notice. Any clerical or procedural errors in the legal eviction process is grounds for an appeal. If there are errors in filings or eviction notices, the landlord must submit a secondary notice to their tenant. The ten (10) days will then start over. If there is an error, they cannot evict you even after the ten days are up.
Second, a landlord may not resort to their own methods in order to evict a tenant. A landlord still owes a duty to the tenant to keep the rental property inhabitable. This means that they may not shut off utilities to the property. They may not use unsavory methods to make an otherwise livable rental property uninhabitable. The landlord cannot change the locks of the apartment or enter the property to remove the tenant’s personal property. A landlord cannot physically remove the tenant from the property. These are all examples of an illegal eviction.
A landlord must go through the legal process without committing an error in order to legally evict a tenant.
