House of Representatives
Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session


Posted: May 25, 2017 02:40 PM
From: Representative Michael K. Hanna
To: All House members
Subject: Amending the Landlord and Tenant Act
Within the next few days I will be introducing legislation to amend the Landlord and Tenant Act of 1951.

Specifically, my bill would provide for a definition of “actual damages”, which would help to clarify the law in an area that has led to a conflict in interpretation between the Office of the PA Attorney General and my constituents. Providing for this definition will strengthen the act and provide greater clarity between landlords and tenants.

Please join me in cosponsoring this important piece of legislation. If you should have any questions, please contact Eric Mock by email at emock@pahouse.net.

Introduced as HB1593
