LANDLORD TENANT COURTS IN PENNSYLVANIA SET TO REOPEN ON JULY 11TH
Per Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf’s Executive Order, Landlord Tenant matters will begin processing on July 11th, 2020.
On May 11th, the Governor stayed all Notice Requirements mandated by the Landlord and Tenant At of 1951 and the Manufactured Home Community Rights Act for 60 days. This action tolled the ability to commence the timelines necessary for the initiation of eviction proceedings. Per the order, all eviction timelines must be computed with a start date of July 10th, 2020, at which point any previously delivered Landlord and Tenant Act of 1951 and Manufactured Home Community Rights Act notices will be deemed delivered and any eviction proceedings may commence. The eviction proceedings requiring compliance with the Landlord and Tenant Act of 1951 and the Manufactured Home Community Rights Act may proceed from that point forward in the normal course of action.
On July 11th, all Landlord Tenant matters will resume in Pennsylvania Courts. The Judicial Statewide emergency in Pennsylvania has been lifted as of June 1st, 2020.

We will be monitoring the Courts and opening dates and will provide updates as changes occur.
