The Pennsylvania ten (10) day notice to pay or quit, in relation with Section 250.501(b), is to be served on a tenant who has failed to pay rent. The notice informs the tenant of their delinquency, and that they have 10 days to either pay the past due amount of rent or vacate the rental unit. This notice must be served to the tenant before the landlord can file an eviction action in court. Only after the notice period has expired (with no action taken by the tenant), can the landlord then file the eviction lawsuit.
How to Write
Step 1 – Enter the date in dd/mm/yyyy format in the “Date” field at the top of the notice, and then put the name(s) of the tenant(s) in the
“Dear” input field.
Step 2 – Write the full address of the rental unit (street, apartment/unit number, city, county, state, ZIP).
Step 3 – Enter the total amount of rent that is due, and then provide the specific rental periods/amounts.
Step 4 – Sign and print your name in the fields at the bottom of the form.
Note: You should make several copies of the completed notice. At the minimum – one to give to the tenant, one for the court (if necessary), and one for your own records.
