Maintenance of a property is generally the owner's responsibility. This is a fairly straightforward rule for Allegheny County homeowners. However, maintenance duties aren't so clear cut when you start talking about leased property.
Many Pennsylvania properties are rented for residential or commercial purposes. Owners are often off-site with upkeep assigned to property managers or operators. Some chores, like snow removal or groundskeeping services, may be outsourced to third parties.
