Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2021 - 2022 Regular Session


Posted: December 28, 2020 11:54 AM
From: Senator Jay Costa
To: All Senate members
Subject: Prohibition on Rent Rebates to be Assigned to Landlords
Please join me in sponsoring legislation, which was introduced as Senate Bill 377 in the 2017-2018 Legislative Session. This bill would make it unlawful for a landlord and tenant to enter into any agreement that requires a tenant to pay or assign to the landlord any part of a rent rebate to which the tenant is entitled under the Taxpayer Relief Act of 2006.

The Attorney General’s Office is granted the authority to enforce this act. Further, any landlord who violates the act would be required to fully reimburse the tenant for any portion of payment, along with penalties and interest on the total amount of the payment, to which the tenant was entitled.

I hope you will join me in sponsoring this legislation. Senators Fontana, Baker, Brewster, Haywood, Hughes, Boscola and Browne previously co-sponsored this bill.

Introduced as SB747
