Fogelsville, PA asked in Landlord - Tenant for Pennsylvania

Q: My Pennsylvania landlord advised me they are evicting me under "Pennsylvania Hotelkeepers Law".

My Pennsylvania landlord advised me they are evicting me under "Pennsylvania Hotelkeepers Law" without any other reason given other then they need my room. Is this allowed under specific Pennsylvania precedent? Assuming the plain language in the statute applies about removing guests, isn't in true that they still must provide a "Notice To Quit", which then must provide more specific reasons for the removal anyway?

A: I may be throughly thick, but would you ask your question again and include more information. Look at the lease and sign on the house: did you lease a room, a hotel room, an air bnb, a vacation room? Townships require rental licenses to lease houses and rooms, but the state requires real estate licenses to rent certain types of rooms, such as air bnbs. So please include in your question who or how the room was marketed to you.
