The water was also shut off several times without warning due to the landlord's failure to pay the water bill and we received notice of a sheriff's sale on the property due to back taxes. After moving out, we didn't get back our security deposit or even a list of deductions, which led us to filing a small claims suit which we won. Another warning: lease identified the landlord as "Pat Gubitos" but this is not the name of the owner of the property. His real name is Pasquale DiGiulio and I urge you to research previous lawsuits filed against him by former tenants and the City of Philadelphia on http://www.courts.phila.gov/casesearch (search civil dockets). We rented this apartment through Tara Realty, which wrote up the lease using the wrong landlord name despite a long relationship with this particular landlord and should also be avoided.
