Landlord/Tenant law has a very unique place within New Jersey judicial system. Landlord/Tenant court is within the purview of the civil court system and most cases involve either a non-payment of rent or a failure of the tenant to comply with the terms of the lease.
If you are the landlord, you must file your papers, serve notices correctly, and your rental unit registered with the municipality or your case may be dismissed.
If you are the tenant, you have to provide some defense, either proof of payment or lack of notice, and be prepared for trial on the date of the court hearing.
Landlord/Tenant court matters often get resolved by one party failing to meet one of the strict requirements.
