  1. Best answer

    You can bring a landlord-tenant complaint with the Magisterial District Judge. Although you have an oral lease, you have records of payment, which should be sufficient to prove your case. I would be willing to handle this for you if you wish.

  2. It's difficult to prove an oral contract. However, keeping records is a good thing. You need to file suit in county court and should consider getting an attorney to assist you.
