How You Can Protect Your Property
The Anti-Eviction Act governs a big part of landlord-tenant relations in New Jersey. Landlords can assert many causes of action against tenants under the act.
At Robinson & Robinson, LLC, our lawyers represent only landlords in landlord-tenant disputes. We can help you file a claim against a tenant. Nonpayment of rent is one of the most common causes of action. Other claims include:
- Disorderly conduct
- Habitually paying rent late
- Criminal convictions
- Damage to the apartment
- Destruction of property
Each of these issues has its own set of circumstances and rules and notices that must be complied with. It is a complicated process for landlords because New Jersey laws are set up to protect tenants’ rights.
What Should I Do If I Want To Evict A Tenant?
Wrongful eviction can cost a landlord thousands of dollars. A landlord should consult with an attorney to determine whether he or she has a cause of action against a tenant and whether a security deposit can be deducted.
Robinson & Robinson, LLC, provides landlords with legal services such as:
- Notices to cease due to nonpayment of rent
- Tenant misconduct notices
- Lease violation notices
- Complaint filing in court
- Warrants for removal
- Lockout arrangements with the local sheriff
We can also help you collect unpaid rent, even if the tenant files for bankruptcy.
