Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Real Estate litigation attorney. Thanks for your question.
Just last year, Pennsylvania enacted a law that requires the landlord to provide a tenant with 10 days notice to recover personal property or the landlord can dispose of the property at his/her discretion.
Here's a very good link that outlines the new law: http://www.guardianclosings.com/2012/08/19/when-is-property-left-behind-by-a-tenant-considered-abandoned-property/
If you can't find the tenant, you can send the notice to the last known address or the forwarding address provided (if one was provided).
