NEPA Landlord Tenant Homeowner Association Blog



Commentary on issues regarding property rights, this blog relays information on events past, present, and into the future in Northeast PA (USA). While facts are presented, an opinion may be thrown in the mix to make things more interesting. Corrections are welcomed by using the comments -  as long as we see documents to back it up.

As far as the comment part of this blog, we appreciated hearing from people literally all over the world! We generally don't publish the comments though because this is a local blog. Even so, comments published are rare unless they add to the story or a correction is needed and information sent was confirmed. Glad you're enjoying it though! We STILL have some freedoms here and intend to exercise them at will!

Wilkes-Barre's One Strike

Rust never sleeps...Not that we haven't been playing cards, in fact it's been busy.

Certain local municipalities are using code enforcement to enforce ordinances outside the boundaries of the adopted PA UCC. In the quest to appeal a code enforcement decision for Mr. Peters, it was certainly expected that the Board of Appeals will standy by the city's ordinance even though the PA UCC section 403.121 states qualifications for the members are neutral...I'll bet with an audit there's vilolations, but I digress. 

The best course of action may be the State Supreme Court where it will be proven that the one strike clause against a property owner does not fall in the jurisdiction of the PA UCC statute. At that point is becomes a Constitutional issue I'll bet the Commonwealth sides with the owner. Regardless of the owner's decision, we'll press on to show Wilkes-Barre is using building code for law enforcement. And for those who think this works - the "perps" can move to the Sherman Hills sanctuary.
