        The General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania
     hereby enacts as follows:

        Section 1.  That hereafter all beauty and barber shop
     furniture, mechanical appliances and equipment leased or hired
     under bailment lease to any person residing within this
     Commonwealth, or conditionally sold to any such person, under
     contract of sale, reserving the title in the vendor until paid
     for, shall be exempt from levy and sale on execution or distress
     for rent, so long as the title thereto remains in the bailment
     lessor or conditional vendor: Provided, however, That written
     notice that such beauty or barber shop furniture, mechanical
     appliances or equipment, specifically describing the same, have
     been leased or hired or conditionally sold to any such person,
     shall be given to the landlord or his agent at the time the said
     beauty or barber shop furniture, mechanical appliances or
     equipment are placed upon the demised premises, or within five
     (5) days thereafter, which notice shall contain a statement of
     the respective amounts due to the lessor or conditional vendor
     on each of the articles therein, and when so given shall be
     effective as to such landlord and any future owner or owners of
     said premises. Upon request at any reasonable time, the owner or
     conditional vendor of said beauty or barber shop furniture,
     mechanical appliances or equipment shall advise the landlord as
     to the status of the account with the tenant relative thereto.
     Nothing herein contained shall prevent the landlord or his agent
     from levying upon and selling on execution or distress for rent,
     any right or interest of the bailment lessee or conditional
     vendee under such bailment lease or contract of conditional
     sale, subject to the rights therein of the bailment lessor or
     conditional vendor.
        Section 2.  All acts or parts of acts inconsistent herewith
     are hereby repealed.
        Section 3.  This act shall become effective immediately upon
     final enactment.
