- Section 8 rental subsidy programs (voucher and project-based)
- Representation of landlords and management companies in municipal courts throughout the state as they relate to property maintenance issues

The classification of your tenancy in New Jersey determines the laws that apply to it. New Jersey separates rental property into two categories. If you are the owner-occupant of a property with fewer than three rentals, you are governed by laws less problematic than other tenancies. All other types of tenancies are subject to the Anti-Eviction Act. For the former type of tenancy, you are allowed to remove tenants without “good cause.” For the latter type of tenancy, you must have “good cause” to evict tenants.
Summary Dispossess Proceedings
SHC has vast experience in all aspects of the summary dispossess proceedings for landlords in New Jersey:
- Preparation and filing of summonses and complaints for eviction based upon all grounds provided for by statute;
- Preparation and service of Notices to Cease and Notices to Quit with demand for a possession; and
- Preparation of Warrants of Removal.
If you need our help in any aspect of the above process, please do not hesitate to contact us.
