Course Description

Time 52 minutes
Difficulty Beginner

Tens of thousands of landlord-tenant cases are filed every year. The volume of cases suggest that landlord- tenant practice should be “basic.” But, reality is quite different. This course introduces the fundamentals of NJ landlord-tenant law, untangles the Anti-Eviction Act and offers practical advice for handling cases in this technical but critical field.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Understand the basics of a landlord-tenant relationship in New Jersey (i.e., formation, duration, and termination)
  2. Become familiar with the rights and responsibilities of landlords and tenants

  3. Grasp the basics of the most common causes of action for eviction, and their defenses
  4. Discuss how to avoid common mistakes in everyday practice

This was the best seminar I've watched to date. I admire very much this attorney's view on his role as an advocate for his client while respecting the dignity of those who his client may have a dispute. His presentation was also very clear, concise and informative. Recommend it highly.
