Hearing: September 26, 2023 at 12:45 PM
Client, who is currently on unpaid maternity leave, is facing eviction and a $9000 money judgment. Client fell behind after her rent nearly doubled. She has tried to get rental assistance, but her property manager will not co-operate. There are severe water leak issues, resulting in a caving-in ceiling and soaked and moldy carpet. Client reported the building to the Philadelphia Housing Authority (PHA) and multiple citations were issued. However, the issues were unfixed and the building lost their contract with PHA. Landlord is suing for rent due after loss of the PHA contract/subsidy. Client would like to negotiate time to move out and a reduced balance. Property Management is represented by Jenel Marraccini, Esq.
