Certificate of Rental Suitability

As you know, the City of Philadelphia requires that a Certificate of Rental Suitability be given to a tenant before moving into a property. We received a notice from the City today that the ability to pull Certificates will be suspended until March 23rd. This will affect anyone who is moving into a property from 3/12 until 3/23.
