On April 9, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court found that a commercial landlord had the right to recover parts of the additional unpaid rent under a lease agreement, but limited the landlord`s forfeiture because of the statute of limitations. Although the decision was not premeditated, the case provides practitioners with useful guidance as to when the rental rights should be claimed against a tenant in a commercial tenancy agreement and underlines the importance of all rights arising from an unpaid rent lease being filed in a timely manner. To Smith v. Wakefield, LP, on February 27, 2019, the Maryland Supreme Court signed leases under the seal, but the Maryland General Assembly set a three-year deadline for the collection of rental housing in 1715. This three-year statute of limitations had not been changed in three centuries by legal revisions and the recoding of the real estate section of the Maryland Annotated Code. These revisions also eliminated the requirement for a label for the transportation of real estate or leases.
In addition, Maryland lawmakers have called for an anti-waiver regime for leases, which prohibits tenants from waiving or waiving another right or remedy, which is otherwise provided for by existing legislation.

If the court finds the small claims in favour of the owner, the owner can get a money judgment against you.
The amount includes the total rent due with fees and interest, plus the cost of repairing the damage caused to the rental property. The lessor must file the appeal in court before the deadline expires. This is a statute of limitations and is the period within which legal actions are allowed after the default. Different leases are subject to different restrictions, including oral and written leases.

Where a non-action is not initiated in respect of the original civil action, any counterclaim, subsequent prosecution or third-party complaint resulting from such an action does not end, but may be pursued as an initial civil action. However, where a cross-suit action, cross-claim or third-party complaint is filed as a civil action, as permitted by this subsection, and the appeal does not deal with a decision on the merits of such a claim, the defendant has the right to file within the allotted time a counterclaim, a cross-claim or a third-party claim. , unless the original appeal is filed under section 28-1-105. Any appeal as a counter-appeal, « cross-claim » or « third party » resulting from an initial action or appeal brought before the General Assembly Court, which was subsequently taken up as an initial or counter-action, counter-claim or third party, in accordance with this section of the Chancery or Chancery Court, in accordance with the provisions of the
