New Jersey Month-to-Month Lease Agreement
The New Jersey month to month rental agreement is exactly like the standard lease except that there is no end date between the landlord and tenant. The period goes on forever until one (1) party gives notice of at least thirty (30) days to the other of their intention to quit the lease (according to Statute 2A:18-56).
Other than that one (1) exception, the lessor and lessee must follow all State laws and the landlord should screen the tenant with a rental application before occupancy to make sure the individual(s) have the financial means to pay the monthly amount.
Required Landlord Disclosures
- Flood Zone – The landlord will need to use the maps to see if their property is located in a flood zone. If it is they will need to let the tenant know.
- Lead-Based Paint – Only to be given to the tenant if the housing structure was built before 1978.
- Truth in Renting – This form must be handed out to every tenant if the housing unit is located in a building of two (2) or more units of which the landlord is not occupying.
