You must have cause to evict a tenant in New Jersey. However, missing the rent payment deadline is “just cause” for evicting a tenant. You also have a right to evict if the tenant is violating any terms of the lease agreement. For example, you could evict someone for smoking in a non-smoking unit or keeping a dog in a pet-free unit.  You should also be aware of any illegal activity on your property which would also allow you to begin the eviction process.

Notice To Cease And Notice To Quit

A “Notice to Cease” is a warning to the tenant that you will no longer accept a continued violation of the lease. It is only necessary in cases where you have habitually allowed the tenant to pay rent late or some other activity is occurring that is in violation of the lease terms or violation of the law. After you have delivered the “Notice to Cease,” you can submit a “Notice to Quit” the next time the rent is late or if the improper activity has not been abated.

Filing An Eviction Lawsuit

You can only evict residential tenants by filing an eviction lawsuit against them. In certain circumstances, it will be necessary to file the “Notice to Quit” first. Once you have obtained a Judgment of Possession, the tenant will be legally compelled to leave the property or be charged with trespassing. Our eviction attorneys can file the lawsuit; in the case of non-payment of rent, it is wise to get started as soon as rent is late if you want to recover the unit for new tenants as quickly as possible.

Evictions With No Lease

Under New Jersey law, even a verbal agreement without documents can be considered a lease. If you agreed to allow someone to live in your property, that is enough to qualify as an “oral lease,” and you must follow normal eviction laws when you want to remove them.
