Philadelphia Landlord / Tenant Legal Help Center

Providing free legal information, advice, and limited representation to unrepresented, low-income individuals who are facing eviction and other legal rental housing problems in Philadelphia.

Philadelphia Bar Foundation Grant Impact

The Philadelphia Bar Foundation’s support for the Landlord Tenant Help Center (LTHC) has allowed LTHC to provide needed representation to tenants who are at risk of losing their homes. Offering dynamic, in-court services makes legal help accessible to the most vulnerable people who would otherwise go without any kind of advice. Navigating the court system can be nearly impossible for vulnerable tenants who are not familiar with the process or aware of their options, and the LTHC levels the playing field so that tenants can access justice.
