Create a Pennsylvania Lease Agreement with our attorney-drafted template!
A Pennsylvania lease agreement is a written agreement between a landlord and a tenant. It is legally binding. The landlord agrees to lease the mentioned property to the tenant. The tenant promises to pay a certain amount of money to use the property. All Pennsylvania lease agreements must adhere to the Landlord and Tenant Act of 1951.
The most commonly used Pennsylvania lease agreements are standard residential lease agreements, month-to-month leases, roommate agreements, subleasing agreements, and commercial lease agreements.
A standard Pennsylvania lease agreement should include:
The signature of the landlord and the signature of the tenant. The signatures must be dated.
The only disclosure that must be made is for lead based paint in residential units built before 1978.
The landlord may not request more than two months’ worth of rent as a security deposit. The security deposit must be returned to the tenant within 30 days of the end of the lease. If the landlord keeps funds for repairs, they must provide an itemized list of deductions.
