Landlord Registration
A landlord in New Jersey must register certain information with the clerk of the municipality where the rental property is located. New Jersey state law reads that if you are going to take a tenant into court for eviction and you have not registered with the municipality in which the dwelling is located, the court has no legal power to evict a tenant until the landlord has complied with the law.
