As a renter, your security deposit cannot be more than two months’ rent. From October-April, the landlord must provide you with heat at a minimum of 68 F (unless you have your own thermostat). This rule also applies in May and September if the outdoor temperature is less than 60 F. You can refuse to pay rent until important repairs are made.

If you are one of the many people moving to Philadelphia from NYC, you will find the housing to be much more affordable. If you do not own a car, don’t buy one (there is a general lack of parking in Philadelphia). Hire professional movers instead.
