Yes, a contract to lease is binding in Pennsylvania. As long as the written lease is signed by both parties, the tenant and the landlord are bound to comply with the terms and conditions of the lease.
If the tenant or landlord fails to comply with the terms, either by not paying rent or maintaining the premises, legal action can be brought against them.
