PA Extends Halt of Evictions to August 31, 2020


This week, Governor Wolf signed yet another Executive Order preventing residential evictions.

 

Specifically, the EO states:

 

  • Section 2: Notice Requirements of the Landlord and Tenant Act and other Acts Suspended Commencing on July 10, the notice requirements mandated by the Landlord and Tenant Act of 1951 and the Manufactured Home Community Rights Act are stayed until August 31, 2020, thereby tolling the ability to commence the timelines necessary for the initiation of residential eviction proceedings. All residential eviction proceedings requiring compliance with the Landlord and Tenant Act of 1951 and the Manufactured Home Community Rights Act cannot commence until August 31, 2020. All eviction timelines must be computed with a start date of August 31, 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.
