The Eviction Process in Western Pennsylvania

Snippet from the first page of The Eviction Process in Western Pennsylvania Guide

This guide, created by the Pittsburgh Commission on Human Relations, provides a general walkthrough of how a Tenant can be removed from their private rental home through a court eviction process. 

This overview is a "worst case scenario" for the Tenant, in which they are not able to stop the eviction at any of the phases.

It does not cover all situations, including:

  • if the lease has a "Notice Wavier",
  • if the Tenant is in public housing (not private),
  • if the Tenant and Landlord work out a settlement or use a diversion program, to end the case,
  • if the Tenant is able to stop the process by fixing the violation (e.g. paying back rent), or successfully defending themselves in court.
