House of Representatives
Session of 2013 - 2014 Regular Session


Posted: December 11, 2012 02:41 PM
From: Representative John D. Payne
To: All House members
Subject: Co-Sponosorship - Landlord-Tenant Hearings by District Justice
I plan to re-introduce legislation from last session, HB 1390, that would amend the Landlord-Tenant Act (Act #20 of 1951) Section 502 Summons and Service (a). This would change from 10 to 7 the number of days a district judge has to schedule a landlord-tenant hearing. My legislation would also amend Section 513 Appeal by Tenant to Common Pleas Court (b) to change from 10 days to 5 days the time frame a tenant has to appeal the judgment rendered.

Introduced as HB193
