The COVID-19 Pandemic has changed, perhaps permanently, the world in which we live. Just as all other sectors of the economy have been forced to adapt to never-before seen restrictions, safety protocols and precautions, the legal industry has found itself faced with many new challenges ranging from closed courthouses to remote depositions. However, no part of the legal industry has seen as much turmoil and confusion as the landlord/tenant realm. Eviction moratoriums were enacted on the state and federal levels, expired, renewed by government and the courts, and then taken away again. As a result, landlords and tenants alike have been left confused as to their respective rights, duties and obligations when it comes to evictions, all of which are subject to change with little or no notice. This course will discuss the current state of residential evictions in Pennsylvania, as well as what landlords and tenants can expect as we hopefully move forward and out of this pandemic.
