Thank you for using Just Answer. I want to provide you the best service I can. Please feel free to ask any follow up questions you have.
I am an attorney with 30 years of experience. I also happen to be a former Landlord. I hope to provide you information that will help you in resolving your question.
The PA Landlord Tenant Act does not address a good faith deposit. So your written agreement will control. As long as your tenant agrees in writing to the proposal you are making you are OKAY.
As an aside - as a former landlord - I might add that this situation has red flags all over it. You would be far better off waiting for a reliable tenant. Having a bad tenant is such a huge headache, and can be very expensive.
I want you to be comfortable and satisfied with my attempt to assist you. Please, if you have ANY follow up questions, feel free to ask. Please note that I am generally unavailable Friday evening through Sunday.
I hope the information I have provided is useful to you and that I have earned a positive rating from you. It costs you nothing extra, and is the only way I get credit for my attempt to assist you.
If you are dissatisfied with my response PLEASE let me know before giving me a negative review so that I may try to be of better assistance. Or if you prefer, let me know and I can “Opt Out” and your question can be re-posted without additional cost to you. I will be fair to you and only ask the same from you.
