Urgent Message to residential property owners:  Please be aware that because of the health emergency in New Jersey, Governor Murphy has suspended all scheduled residential evictions resulting from landlord-tenant proceedings at least until May 19, 2020.  All previous orders of removal are stayed by Governor Murphy.

Residential lockouts, where there is no court order for a tenant’s removal, are always illegal. 

Please be safe.
