landlord wants to charge utilities in previously gross lease agreement. landlord plans to charge tenants for common maintenance items (i.e. replacement of smoke detector battery). we need legal help but Neighborhood Legal Services provides help to those only in eviction processes and we cannot afford an attorney. We are very scared.
If your lease is expired you landlord does have certain rights to renegotiate the terms. There is no "rent control" in PA like in NY. if you aren't happy with the terms of the new lease then you can certainly move to another facility.
