Experienced Guidance In Landlord-Tenant Law

Landlord-tenant issues can be contentious matters for property owners and tenants alike. The laws that govern rental property in New Jersey place many requirements on landlords. Many first-time landlords and owners of duplexes, condos and single units are not familiar with the obligations necessary to enforce the provisions of a lease. Similarly, many new landlords are unaware that a lease automatically renews, unless the language is carefully drafted or the owner occupies a unit on the same premises.
