Evicting and locking out a tenant is often one of the biggest challenges for a property owner. But in many cases, you may not have a choice. If a tenant refuses to pay rent for a number of months, repeatedly behaves in a disorderly way, or damages the property, you often have to make the move to evict them from the property. Connection Property Management has years of experience in dealing with South Jersey evictions and lockouts, and we’re prepared for the legal challenges involved.
For a resident to be evicted, it must be approved through a Special Civil Part Officer. For this order, the landlord is required to file a lawsuit in a Superior Court and get a judgment for possession from the court. If a tenant chooses to, they can challenge the eviction ruling in a county court.
A landlord must also provide written notice to the tenant in matters of disorderly behavior or property damage; New Jersey law will give a tenant a month to stop the behavior before a landlord can pursue an eviction.
Save yourself the headaches and let Connection handle the process of eviction and lockout. Our in-house South Jersey evictions and lockouts attorney will file the motion within 24 hours, and we’ll oversee the entire process, including attending the hearing. We will keep you informed every step of the way, and help make the eviction process as quick and painless as possible.
