Customer Question
What is the theory...

What is the theory in Pennsylvania that municipalities may do all that the PA constitution does not forbid?

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No, it has to do with the Pennsylvania Home Rule and Options Plan Rule

Lawyer's Assistant: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Pennsylvania - at one time, the law was interpreted to say that a municipality could only do what the PA constitution allowed, then it was changed to say that they could do what they needed to as long as the state Constitution did not deny the action.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
