Pennsylvania Order for Possession - If the landlord wins a judgement for possession, which means the tenant must move, the landlord can then enforce the judgement. This means that no sooner than fifteen (15) days after the District Justice makes his decision and enters the judgement for possession, the landlord can have the constable give the tenant an "Order for Possession". This Order for Possession is a notice telling the tenant that unless the tenant is out of the property by a date set on the notice (no sooner than fifteen (15) days after the date the tenant receives the notice) the Constable or Sheriff can forcibly set the tenant and his/her belongings out of the house or apartment. This is a total of at least thirty (30) days after the judgement for possession was entered.
If the Constable has to forcibly evict the tenant, and the tenant has not arranged for a place for his/her furniture and belongings, the Sheriff or Constable can store the furniture and belongings at a storage company at the tenant's expense. A tenant must pay any storage bill before getting his/her furniture and belongings back. If the tenant does not pay the storage bill or make arrangements regarding the furniture and belongings, they may be sold by the storage company to pay the storage bill.
THE LANDLORD MAY NOT HOLD THE TENANT'S FURNITURE OR PERSONAL BELONGINGS OR SELL THEM TO PAY BACK RENT.
If the tenant wants to appeal the District Justice's decision, the appeal must be filed within thirty (30) days after the judgement for possession has been entered by the District Justice. It is then possible to stop the eviction until after the appeal is heard in the Court of Common Pleas, although it may be necessary to post a bond unless the Court gives permission to waive the bond or to deposit rent instead of a bond. The process of appeal may take several months. http://tenant.net/Other_Areas/Penn/harris/pa-part5.html
