Jackson, NJ asked in Landlord - Tenant for New Jersey

Q: My landlord sold my rental home (single family) and served me a 30 day notice to move. This is during the pandemic.

We do not have the funds to relocate at this time. He also did not renew our yearly lease which was due end of February and when I requested it he gave me a month to month instead. What can I do to prevent my family of 6 to be removed from out home during these times.

A: There are a number of issues involved which are not described. One important item is whether this is an owner occupied dwelling. Secondly, was the month to month renewal in writing or oral? Was there a change in the terms other than than just the change to month to month? Was there a rental increase? Was there a change in the security deposit? We’re you expecting to renew for another year? Is your rent payment current. There may be another rent moratorium extension in the offering. I would suggest you arrange a consultation with a local attorney for an in depth discussion of your rights and obligations.
