Eviction assistance question please help

Posted Jan 17 2022, 09:52

Hey everyone,

New tenant moved in 5 months ago. Upon move in, she obtained rental assistance and the agency paid her rent of 5 months and one months security to me about 1.5 months after she moved in. Effective 1/15 she needed to start paying rent. I sent her a friendly reminder that her 5 months of no rent due was approaching. She thanked me for the reminder. Come 1/15 she sends me only have of the rent due and said that she won't have the other half until the end of the month. I am in the state of PA. I have a clause in lease that I am not required to provide notice to quit. I'm thinking I should file for eviction given the facts that she had 5 months rent free and it's ridiculous that she can't pay the entire rent now. She had 5 months to save up. She said got sick, hurt, and issue w/ pay check at work. Would everyone agree or am I being to harsh??
