As a tenant-friendly state, landlords in New Jersey must take special care and precautions when dealing with tenants.  When a problem tenant is involved, the landlord is often tempted to resolve the issue directly. However New Jersey law requires that, in many cases, the landlord must take specific steps and measures before they can move to evict or take other adverse action against the tenant.  Even if you do evict the tenant, your company may still be left with their belongings and other property that was left in the apartment. In some instances the evicted tenant may even damage the premises in an attempt to exact revenge for their eviction.  We can advise your property management company on the options it has regarding the disposition of the tenant’s property and the legal options it has regarding the property damage.  Our attorneys can also handle complaints regarding the condition of the premises, constructive eviction, issues regarding quiet enjoyment, lease agreement issues, and many other landlord-tenant concerns.

We handle all types of landlord and tenant issues ranging from simple issues to complex litigation. We represent landlords and we are dedicated to crafting legal strategies that are likely to achieve their goals . We are always fully prepared regardless of the issue presented before us and we always work hard to achieve a favorable results for our clients.

Landlords often come to us with questions such as:

  • Am I permitted to evict my tenant if I know they are selling illegal drugs from their apartment?
  • Is there anything I can do if a tenant is damaging the premises?
  • A tenant has requested a modification due to his disability that seems excessive and extravagant. Do I have to pay for it?
  • My commercial tenant is using the premises for purposes other than what we agreed the space would be used for. Can I make her stop? Can I evict and collect damages until I find a new tenant?
  • My tenant is habitually late in paying rent and I’m sick of it. What can I do?
