Landlord & Tenant Law

Tenant Foreclosure

It has come to the New Jersey Public Advocate’s Attention that some tenants are being inappropriately forced out of their homes when the building in which they are living has been foreclosed.  Under NJ law, most tenants have the right to remain in their homes during and after foreclosure.

ATTENTION LANDLORDS AND TENANTS

Lumberton Township has an ordinance  which requires all rental properties to register their units with the township construction office. Upon registration all units are subject to an inspection for compliance with the BOCA Property Maintenance  Code. The fee for inspection is $50 and $35 for any re-inspection. The property is then subject to inspection at a change in tenancy before occupancy can take place. A Certificate of Occupancy will be issued upon compliance. The registration shall  be renewed every two years from the date of the initial registration to verify any change in occupancy. Registration forms are available for you on this website or from the construction office.
