Important Legal Update for New Jersey Landlords and Lenders

Important Legal Update for New Jersey Landlords and Lenders

Author: Matthew I. KaneDate: June 10, 2021

The New Jersey Supreme Court has authorized the resumption of commercial landlord-tenant trials as of June 2, 2021. However, it will likely be some time before the residential eviction moratorium is lifted.

In response to the ongoing COVID-19 public health emergency, the Supreme Court of New Jersey authorized the temporary suspension of residential and commercial landlord-tenant trials on March 16, 2020. In July 2020, the New Jersey Supreme Court issued an Order that allowed commercial or residential landlords to make an application for an eviction trial in certain emergency situations, including if a tenant was destroying the property or engaged in illegal activity. In February 2021, the New Jersey Supreme Court issued another Order, clarifying and expanding the circumstances in which a landlord may apply by Order to Show Cause for a trial in a commercial landlord-tenant matter.
