As a landlord or tenant in New Jersey, you must know how your tenancy is classified. This matters because the process of eviction changes depending on classification. Your New Jersey evictions lawyer will:
How is your property classified? If your property is classified as an “owner-occupant” with fewer than three rentals, then the landlord can remove the tenant without “good cause.” However, all other tenancies in New Jersey are covered under the Eviction for Good Cause Law (Anti-Eviction Act). Good causes can include:
No notice is required for evictions if the tenant fails to pay rent as long as the landlord does not have a pattern of accepting habitually late payments from the tenant.
In some cases, a three-day notice to quit is required if the tenant displays disorderly conduct, destroys the landlord’s property, is convicted of a drug crime, or assaults/threatens the landlord.
A thirty-day notice to quit can be given if the tenant continues to violate the terms of the lease or rental agreement after repeated warnings from the landlord.
It’s crucial to have all information locked in under the tenant’s lease. However, if there is a breach in the contract, contact our New Jersey lease attorney. We will help create a case that allows your eviction process.
