Media Eviction Attorney Discusses Which Court Handles Landlord/Tenant Issues
As an experienced Media Eviction Attorney I am often asked which court handles landlord and tenant issues. In Pennsylvania, a landlord’s action to collect rent or regain possession of the premises has to be brought in the Magisterial District Court of whatever area the unit or your building is in. The Magisterial District Court is smaller than the Court of Common Pleas. It’s a more informal process. Typically, it’s referred to as small claims court. It has mandatory jurisdiction over the Landlord and Tenant Act. Following an action for possession and rent, if you as the landlord or the tenant are dissatisfied with the result, then the issue can be appealed to the Court of Common Pleas.
