WHATEVER YOUR ISSUE IS – WE CAN HELP
Non-Payment of Rent If your tenant is past due on rent our staff is equipped to assess the issue and prepare the filings to get the issue resolved. Many times the filing of the complaint will lead to a resolution of the matter, but if not, you will have an experienced attorney with you at trial to represent your interests.
Tenant’s Breach of the Lease / Rules Regulations Occupancy limits, illegal use of unit, smoking provisions, common area access, unauthorized occupants provisions, utility payments, are just a few examples. These violations not only cost you money but they also can effect the lives of other tenants. We know how to resolve these issues as we know the law concerning the strict notice requirements to effectively resolve the issue or get you back possession of the premises if the problems persist. We will be with you every step of the way.
Lease Creation and Review A good lease is important. A properly drafted lease can prevent unnecessary litigation and save you money. Our understanding of the law along with our first-hand experience litigating lease disputes allow us to draft effective leases. All too often, landlords use “boiler plate” leases that can end up causing problems and costing money. A properly drafted lease may enable to you to recover fees and costs if you are forced to litigate an issue. Arons & Arons, LLC. can help you draft or review a proposed lease. So contact us before you sign.
Changes to the lease and rent increase Is your tenant paying less than the market value for his/her unit. Do you want a “month to month” tenant to sign a new lease? Do you require more money to paid towards the security deposit? Or do you wish to change terms to an existing lease? This process is not simple and is must be done in accordance with various State and local laws. Proper notices must be served and the changes must be deemed reasonable and comply with Federal, State and local municipal rent control ordinances. Arons & Arons, LLC. can help to smoothly enact these changes while ensuring they are compliant with the law.
Notices to Quit / Notices to Cease Most landlords already know the importance of sending tenants proper notices if an issue arises. If your notices are not proper or timely served, you will most likely lose and have to start the process over again. The laws concerning landlord/tenant notice requirements are strictly adhered to by the Court. Arons & Arons, LLC. has years of experience litigating notice issues and drafting notices for our clients. Let us help you with this important procedural step that so many landlords properly do on their own.
Security Deposits There are certain legal obligations placed upon the landlord when collecting a security deposit. New Jersey’s Security Deposit Act provides specific rules as to the collection, and disbursement of a tenant’s security. If these rules are not complied with you may be subject to significant damages if a dispute arises. Arons & Arons, LLC. provides services to help both landlords and tenants handle issues that arise with the payment or return of the security deposit. Don’t just guess if you are doing it right, give us a call and we’ll be happy to speak with you.
