This is attorney Bill answering your landlord-tenant question today.
Landlords are obliged to follow real property law when evicting a tenant.
Failure to follow the law in the eviction process and serving you a 10 days notice in PA State for failure to pay rent or longer notice period for other reasons and or taking the law into their own hands can leave a landlord liable for damages in civil court.
An example of awards of damages for wrongful evictions
"A jury awarded $860,000 to victims in Hamilton County, Tennessee, when they found that the landlord improperly evicted the tenants and destroyed their belongings.
In Queens, New York, a landlord was ordered to pay $500,000 to a single dad whom she evicted and then threw his belongings out into the rain"
In relation to damaging your good name, it may be possible to sue for defamation also in the civil court.
