I am in the process of evicting tenants for non payment of

I am in the process of evicting tenants for non payment of rent and had a hearing at the magistrate's office. He will decide in 3 days -Why would a magistrate possibly allow the tenants to stay in the house without paying rent and allow the fact that I am totally paying all of the bills and basically supporting them. I have followed all procedures according to PA Laws but I'm very worried that they will not be held accountable for the lease agreement of $450.00 a month. The twist to this is that it is my son, his girlfriend, and their child.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: PennsylvaniaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I posted a "Notice to Quit" eviction on the property front day giving them 30 days, and then they were not out in 30 days so I filed a tenant/landlord complaint and just had the hearing this morning but the magistrate did not make his decision he said he will mail it to us in 3 days. I'm concerned that for some reason he is going to side with the tenant who is wrongly living in my property entirely at my expense. They have not paid a single dime of rent or utilities as stated in the lease. The tenants conveniently don't have a copy of the signed lease so they acted like it never existed. I am really upset over this.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: That should be it
