Pennsylvania Eviction Laws

Termination and Eviction in Pennsylvania

68 Pa. Cons. Stat. Ann., § 250.501(b) allows a landlord to serve the tenant with a 10 day unconditional notice to quit for nonpayment of rent.

A 15 day unconditional quit notice may be used for a lease of 1 year or less or a lease term of an unspecified amount of time. If the tenancy was for more than a year, the tenant has 30 days to quit for any violations of the terms of the lease.

68 Pa. Cons. Stat. Ann., §§ 250.501(d) and 250.505-A authorizes a 10 day unconditional quit notice if the tenant is convicted for the illegal sale, manufacture, or distribution of an illegal drug; repeated use of an illegal drug; or seizure by law enforcement of an illegal drug within the leased premises.
