New Jersey Laws
In New Jersey, the landlord tenant relationship is regulated by statute, and especially residential landlords are challenged with numerous restrictions and requirements on landlord conduct. Even commercial landlords face restrictions on the circumstances and methods under which they may remove a tenant for lease violations. Landlords must ensure compliance at all phases of the landlord tenant relationship: commencement of the lease, lease administration, resolving disputes, handling of security, rent increases, communications regarding nonpayment and lease violations, voluntary removal, evictions, disposition of abandoned property, and more. Failing to comply with these requirements may result in lost time and greater expense to landlords. Consulting with a qualified landlord tenant attorney will help protect your real estate investment and ease the way through the regulatory requirements.
