Failure to Pay Rent and Eviction Proceedings

We realize that a tenant’s failure to pay rent may be the most common dispute that arises between a landlord and tenant. If a tenant fails to pay rent that is due upon the terms of the agreement entered into with the landlord, the landlord may immediately proceed to commence an eviction proceeding to regain possession of the property. Under these circumstances, the tenant has the right to make payment of all rental arrears due and owing in full by the end of the business day at date of trial dismissing the matter. We strongly advise that you consult a New Jersey Real Estate Attorney at the Juzmeski Law Firms so that you can be confident that your attorney will work diligently to protect your rights and seek out just results.
