Real estate company pays $30,000 settlement

Local News

Tuesday Attorney General Josh Shapiro announced the former tenants of a real estate management company in State College will get some money back.

Shapiro says “Continental Real Estate Management Incorperated”  violated the Landlord Tenant Act by taking 80 dollars on average out of their security deposits when they left, for what they called “administration fees.”

WTAJ spoke to the real estate agency about the violation.

“We had interaction with the Attorney General.  We weren’t aware what we were doing was not in compliance, we are now in compliance and ready to move forward,” John Hanna, President and Property Manager, for Continental Real Estate Management Inc., said.

Under the settlement, the company paid $30,000 in restitution that will be refunded to tenants.
Anyone who wants to file a complaint with the Bureau of Consumer Protection to get that refund has to complete it by May 31st.
