When we go to court and we show the proof of no CO as our reason for non payment are we able to file for the 6x the rent relocation they have to pay? Are we also able to sue for any rent/security paid? Also they never gave us proof of our security after the 30 days and they have never given us our... Read more »
This happened in Jersey City. I got a ticket for $ 110 for parking in a reserved space but there was no clear indication of reserved lots by way of sign board. There were 4 signboards (for reserved parking) for an entire row of approx 10 parking lots and the floor was not marked, no... Read more »
While you may have a case, the cost of the lawyer would certainly be much more than the ticket.
You could try proceeding on your own, but your time has value too. You may or may not be able to convince a judge. You need to weigh this in deciding whether to fight it or not. My feeling...Read more »
Gift tax is only paid on gifts made while the donor was alive. In this case, it sounds like you inherited it. There is an inheritance tax in New Jersey. The rate for class D beneficiaries (a niece or nephew falls into this class) pays a 15% tax. In addition, the estate may be liable for the NJ...Read more »
I have been spending SO MUCH on hotels versus enjoying my home. My kids have been sick and I just feel stuck in this far from what I call a home. Between rats, carpet beetles, flees, birds, and bird mites to say the least. I have reached out to EVERYONE involved in this purchasing process and all I... Read more »
Just contact the company. They will send you the correct forms to fill out. You will likely need to fill out an affidavit of residence and provide the death certificate and letters of administration. You will also likely need to have some of the forms authenticated with a "medallion guarantee"....Read more »
I’ve been renting a condo in receivership for the last 2 years. My lease ends on 12/31/17. I have not received the lease renewal or any other notice. My rent is all paid. This past year I have been late with the rent however no notices or eviction letters were given. The property manager accepted... Read more »
Generally, unless you reside in an owner occupied building, you can only be evicted for one of the causes listed in the anti eviction act. Habitual late payment of rent is one of those causes. However, it appears that this is no longer an issue.
1. We accepted offer $15k less than asking if buyers would accept house “as is”.
2. Buyers were given copy of previous home inspection b4 signing “as is” contract. That inspection report stated it was recommended to replace electric box. Buyers signed with $5k deposit the... Read more »
Without looking at the contract, specifically any inspection provisions, it's hard to say. Often, when someone writes in "house being sold as is", they do not amend the inspection clauses. Therefore, a conflict between your intent and the actual written contract exists. You should check with the...Read more »
I went into court because I was behind only a $100 for that month plus all the lawyer and court fees which brought it up to $500. I said that I will make a payment arrangement they refused and said that I was getting a letter of removal. They filed with the clerk and I was not able to or did I... Read more »

My lease expires on Nov. 1st. On Sep. 19, landlord sent me a new lease with a 5% rent increase, change in utility charges (we would now be paying), a fee for paying rent via credit card, and a permission to enter without legal notice.
We sent him a marked-up copy highlighting these things... Read more »
On move in day, I stopped my move because of the filth but was told, by the landlord, via phone, that she would take care of it later. The lease says "unit" will be painted. Only the walls were painted and not any trim. Baseboards, doors, ceilings, and cabinets are filthy and chipped. Above the... Read more »
Matters like this are very fact dependent. If your landlord violated her written agreement, then you may have recourse. You need to bring your proofs (copies of leases, emails, text messages, pictures, receipts, etc.) to an attorney to review.
