Course Description

In 2017, one commentator noted that nearly 37% of all homes sold in the U.S. were purchased for investment purposes. Since that time, real estate has continued to attract investors of all walks of life. Often, the excitement to buy overshadows both the details of the landlord-tenant laws related to said investments and their effect on profitability.

This program, presented by real estate attorney Tom Major, explains the basics of New Jersey Landlord-Tenant Law for real estate investors and their attorneys. The program focuses on the intersection of New Jersey specific laws and their financial consequences. These principles are explained through a case study of a real estate investor. It begins with her acquisition and concludes with a fully-leased property.  

Learning Objectives:

  1. Gain an overview of the landlord-tenant laws to consider before advising your client
  2. Review how to handle occupied properties
  3. Consider the state and local laws affecting real estate profitability
