Real Estate Law in Pennsylvania
Property and real estate laws typically concern things like landlord-tenant relations, homestead protection from creditors, and laws regulating the rental market that protect both landlords and tenants. In Pennsylvania, for example, landlords must return a tenant’s security deposit within 30 days of the termination of the lease. The state allows landlords to charge up to one month’s rent for a security deposit unless it’s your first year of renting, then the limit is two months. PA also has specific laws regarding adverse possession, homesteads, and property lines. Don’t try to deal with your real estate problem alone.
