New Jersey Rental Agreement Forms and Landlord Resources

New Jersey landlords and property managers are up against some very specific guidelines which must be met in order to be in compliance with New Jersey landlord-tenant laws. To begin with, all residential rental properties except owner occupied properties with no more than two units are required to be registered. Any landlord or property manager who fails to register a rental property will not only face a hefty fine, but will also be in jeopardy of being unable to proceed with an eviction if and when the time comes. Restrictions such as this one are the reason we designed our leases to include New Jersey assist throughout the lease. New Jersey assist guides landlords and property managers through all of the legal requirements for New Jersey landlord-tenant laws so you’re never faced with any legal surprises.

Not only do we ensure New Jersey landlords and property managers are in compliance with landlord-tenant laws, we didn’t stop there. We also wanted you to have as many resources as you need to manage your rentals as proficiently as possible, thus we have included tenant screenings for your convenience. We also know that there may be times when you need a one-on-one consultation with an attorney, so we put together a directory of New Jersey attorneys. And we wouldn’t dare forget that you may have questions about managing your properties or handling your tenants from time to time and may need to access our forum. You may pose any questions you have whether legal or just practical everyday how to questions. It’s your choice. Last but not least, you can always click in the upper right hand corner to speak with one of our friendly and helpful chat members who will gladly provide any form related or technical guidance you may need.

By now you may be thinking, ‘wow that’s a lot of resources’, but we still have more that you can check out for yourself by just clicking the resources tab.

Should I Let A Tenant Exchange Repairs For Rent
Posted November 25, 2018
Should I exchange rent for repairs on the house? It sounds like an appealing arrangement at first glance: your tenant has offered to perform repairs or improvements to your home in exchange for rent. Your mind may race to all of the needed repairs or desired improvements that your willing laborer could perform. Having your tenant perform the repairs frees you up from the tiresome process of meeting with contractors, obtaining quotes, and having the liquid capital to pay the bill.
