Residential Landlords: How Old Is Your Lease?

access_time Posted on: January 26th, 2022

Protect your interests with an update.

When was the last time you updated your lease?  You may be missing important protections or unknowingly violating the Landlord Tenant Act, Unfair Trade Practices and Consumer Protection Act, or even the Plain Language Consumer Contract Law. Violating those laws can result in lawsuits brought by tenants, the Pennsylvania Attorney General, or could even invalidate a lease completely.

Evictions and other litigation can be irritating, time consuming, and expensive.  An updated lease can help to make the process faster, cheaper, and easier.  It can also provide some important protections to you as the landlord.

Contact Attorney Hunter Schenck at hschenck@cgalaw.com about creating a new lease that is tailored to your specific properties in order to help protect your interests as a residential landlord.
