Landlord Tenant Dispute

Experienced Landlord / Tenant Dispute Lawyer

While our core practice focuses on SSDI and SSI benefits advocacy, over the years that work has led us to handle many landlord/tenant disputes.

Ideally, the relationship between a landlord and tenant is friendly. At times, however, disputes can arise between the parties that require professional legal intervention.

Both parties have rights — but also obligations. We help ensure that both parties receive the outcomes to which they are legally entitled. Mr. Greene tries to help his clients settle their disputes out of court if possible.

All services mentioned below are available for both commercial and residential clients, as applicable.

Legal services for tenants

Before taking actions against your landlord, you must first understand your rights and reasonable expectations as a tenant. Not only do these include matters covered directly in your lease; you also have various rights that are dictated by the laws of New Jersey.

Tenant legal representation includes:

  • Breaking a lease
  • Warranty of habitability
  • General harassment
  • Nonpayment of rent
  • Inadequate heat, plumbing, gas, electricity, hot/cold water
  • Pest infestations
  • Recovering security deposits
  • Wrongful eviction

Legal services for landlords

As a landlord, you need to understand the obligations of both parties involved as well as the options you might have in renting your space to another. We can help you draft and review leases to ensure that your terms are legally enforceable. Should it become necessary, we can also help you the proper steps required to ensure tenant compliance with your rights, including eviction.

Landlord legal representation includes:

  • Breach of lease
  • Breaking a lease
  • Failure to pay rent
  • Illegal rental unit use
