Camden County Landlord-Tenant Lawyer
Landlords and tenants both have rights in Camden County, New Jersey, but many do not know how to assert or protect those rights when they are abused. Landlords and tenants do not always agree, but they are both required to abide by the law and follow the terms of their lease.
This process is not always as easy as it sounds, and sometimes it’s better to just legally dissolve the relationship through a lease termination. In cases like these and before a lease is even created or signed, it can be beneficial to consult a Camden County landlord-tenant lawyer.
New Jersey Legal Rental Documents
The documentation process in New Jersey rental relationships starts before the tenant even moves onto the property. While it later ends with the termination of the lease, there are plenty of documents in between.
For example, the landlord has thirty days to provide the tenant with a copy of the Truth in Renting document, which outlines New Jersey tenant rights. Furthermore, documentation is extremely important for both parties. Both parties should have copies of all communications related to both the lease and a complaint.
When this type of situation occurs, you need to have an experienced Camden County landlord-tenant lawyer on your side to make sure everything is handled properly.
Rights of Camden County Landlords and Tenants
The official state statutes are available for all citizens to review, but they boil down to some very simple concepts. The landlord has a right to expect his or her property to not be damaged or destroyed and for the rental payments to be made in a timely manner. The tenant has the right to expect both a safe place to live and the privacy that comes with being in his or her own home.
However, there are several caveats that go along with these rights. For example, while a landlord does have a right to be paid on time, a tenant has the right to request a change of payment due date if, for instance, his or her pay schedule goes from a weekly paycheck to a monthly paycheck.
While these laws may seem fairly straightforward, they aren’t always observed. If you are either a landlord or a tenant in a situation where you feel as though your rights have been violated, our lawyers can help.
