The Pennsylvania rental agreements are to be completed for residential and commercial use as they legally bind both the landlord and the tenant to a set of terms and conditions for the duration of a fixed term (unless it is a tenancy at will). These contracts must comply with all State laws (see Landlord and Tenant Act of 1951) and, upon the signature of the lessor and lessee, the document becomes final and access to the premises can be handed over to the tenant.
