Q: Dear Mr. Reno:
My tenants were evicted due to non-payment of rent. They did pay a portion but unable to provide full amount due. I want to try and recover the balance owed plus some damages left after moving, cost of not being able to rent due to time it will take for repairs, and cleaning fees. Most, if not all issues, are covered in signed lease. How and where do I go about this? Thank you. Carol – PA.
A: The tenants are no longer in possession so the eviction court has no jurisdiction. It’s a small claims court case now. Twenty dollar filing fee. Good Luck.
