Landlord-Tenant Petition to Vacate CLE and Clinic

Help Philadelphia tenants move on with security and peace of mind

Please join Philadelphia VIP for a CLE and Clinic on filing Petitions to Vacate for tenants who received a Judgment by Agreement in an eviction hearing.

 

Attendees will first participate in a one-hour CLE training on how to file a Petition to Vacate, for which they will earn one substantive CLE credit free of charge.

Volunteers will then meet with tenant-clients to assist them in vacating Judgments by Agreements they received in Municipal Court eviction cases. After the clinic, volunteers will continue representing clients pending a conflicts check. While most of these post-clinic engagements are limited to reaching out to the opposing counsel or the landlord for a signature on an order to vacate and e-filing a petition, opposed petitions may require a court appearance.
