Are You Involved In A Landlord-Tenant Dispute?

Disputes between landlords and tenants can be frustrating and unsettling. A tenant may not be paying rent on time or may be annoying their neighbors, the other tenants. These disputes can be very heated and aggravating to handle. So what do you do when no one can agree on a solution to the problem?

At the Law Offices of Peter G. Aziz & Associates LLC, our real estate lawyers have experience representing landlords in landlord-tenant disputes. We understand the frustrations you face and can assist you in coming to an agreement with the tenant in question. We can also represent you in court if the case cannot be settled out of court. We are experienced trial attorneys, and we also have experience in reviewing contracts and negotiating resolutions.

Assisting Landlords With Many Types Of Disputes

When working with clients, we follow the New Jersey Anti-Eviction Act, so we are very familiar with the law in this area.

We can assist landlords and property owners of all types with many types of disputes, including:

  • Evictions for nonpayment of rent
  • Notice to vacate procedures
  • Ejectment actions to remove unauthorized occupants and other actions
  • Owner-occupied reasons for removal such as squatting
  • Dealing with illegal occupants of property, nontenants or trespassers
  • Loud music and other disturbances and disorderly conduct
  • Damage to property
  • Any violation of the terms of the lease

The Difference Between Tenants And Occupants Is Important In Ejectments

Many people confuse these two terms, but it is important to understand the distinction and understand the laws involved. A tenant is someone who pays rent. An occupant is someone who does not pay rent and is not authorized to be there. Examples of occupants are a squatter, trespasser or a previous owner in a foreclosure action.
