Rule 502. Venue; Commencement of the Action.

 A.  The action may be brought in and only in the magisterial district where the whole or part of the real property possession of which is sought to be recovered is located.

 B.  The action shall be commenced by the filing of a complaint.

   Official Note

   Since only recovery of possession of real property and incidental matters are involved, the reason for the restriction on venue in subdivision A is obvious. Compare Pa. R.C.P. No. 1052.
