I am currently in the process of evicting my tenants for non payment and their assumming the security deposit would pay the last months rent of their lease with speaking with me. I have an attorney for the eviction date. Is it necessary for me the landlord to appear in court with my attorney. Would it benefit me receiving the eviction of my tenants? I have been told that I do not have to be there. Thanks V
In Pennsylvania, you must be there. The lawyer represents you ... he isn't going to testify for you. He can't make final decisions for you if a compromise is in the works. Why in the world wouldn't you want to be there?
