HARRISBURG, Pa.-- Attorney General Josh Shapiro issued a public reminder to landlords on Wednesday that Pennsylvanians can not be evicted from their homes at this time. T

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ordered courts closed to eviction proceedings due to the COVID-19 state of emergency. The Court’s order is applicable to all Pennsylvania property owners, managers, landlords, as well as mortgage brokers and lenders.

“With millions of Pennsylvanians following Governor Wolf’s direction to stay at home, it is critical that rental evictions cease for the duration of this emergency,” said​ Attorney General Shapiro in his letter.

“Hundreds of thousands of Pennsylvanians have lost wages and jobs during this crisis and we will need time for businesses to reopen and for our economy to come back when the emergency is lifted. Stable housing is part of the foundation we need as a Commonwealth to fully recover.”

Residents who believe the policy is being violated can file a complaint with the PA AG's office.
