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.

New Jersey landlord-tenant law is complex, but our summary below helps explain the basics, particularly for lease and landlord regulations.

My Tenant Backed Out of the Lease - Now What?
Posted December 22, 2016
You gathered a pile of applications for your rental property. You narrowed it to several finalists and, after screening a few backgrounds, you finally settled on the best candidate for your next tenant. Now, that tenant is backing out of the lease at the very last minute. What should you do, besides tearing your hair out? It depends on whether or not the tenant signed your lease agreement, and whether you obtained a Hold Deposit. Also, did your lease include an Early Termination clause? Know the answers to these questions before reading further - they matter!

Why Does Eviction Take So Long?
Posted December 13, 2016
You want your tenants out and you want them out today. You have been more than patient, your tenants are taking advantage of you, and things are only going to get worse. So, why can't you just kick them out immediately? Wouldn't any judge understand that eviction is appropriate under these typical scenarios? • Tenants haven't paid rent in months. • Tenants let other people move in and never told you or asked permission. • The last time tenants let you in to inspect, you saw the unit was trashed.
