My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: Pennsylvania
After living in a house cor 4 months of a three year lease, our landlord texts me to tell me they need the house back and that we have 6 weeks to get out. Initially we asked for a buy out to cover some of our moving expenses. She refused and flipped on me, cussing and swearing. So in order to just get out of this terrible situation, we just decided to leave. We found a house and moved. On our last day in the other house, she does a walk through and says everything is fine and gives us a check for our pet deposit back. Ten hours later she texts me that she is canceling the check because there is cat pee in 2 rooms. The living room, which I don' t beleive, and a small upstairs room, which may be possible since it was the room with the litter box. She tells me she is taking me to civil court to replace her carpef. Do I still have the right to sue her for breaking the lease? The amount she should have paid us is way more than the carpet worth. She has just been a terrible landlors since day one and we are hoping this is the last step to ridding her from our lives! My past 2 landlords returned full deposits with no cat pee so it' s really odd my cat would just decide to pee in this house. What are my options?
