In Pennsylvania, a landlord who wants to evict a tenant, who has
not moved in response to the landlord’s eviction notice, must file a lawsuit at
the Magisterial District Judge called a Landlord/Tenant Complaint. The
Complaint, and a notice scheduling a hearing on the Complaint, will be given to
the tenant by a constable or sheriff’s deputy in person or by posting on the
tenant's door. A copy of the Landlord/Tenant Complaint will also be sent to the
tenant by regular mail. Download our packet for more questions and answers concerning this topic.
