New Jersey Landlord Tenant Law – The Ninth Installment

gavel.jpgThe Law Office of Michael D. Mirne, through its continued affiliation with Sterling Education Services is proud to announce that we will once again be presenting a Seminar on the exciting subject of Landlord Tenant Law. This year’s seminar, which is the ninth annual program, will be conducted on March 20 at the Courtyard by Marriott in Parsippany, New Jersey. Our colleague, Christopher Costa, from the firm of Hartsough, Kenny, Chase, and Sullivan will be leading off the day with a discussion regarding the selection and screening of tenants, leasing, security deposits, public housing agreements, abandoned property and everything else that a landlord needs to know to run a successful business.

Following Mr. Costa’s presentation, I will be transitioning the discussion from the landlord tenant relationship to a discussion on dissolving that relationship through the eviction process. I will be speaking specifically on the topics of the Anti-Eviction Act, service of legal notices to tenants, rent increases, habitability defenses, personal occupancy by landlord, illegal lockouts, settlement agreements and filing procedures. I will also be speaking about strategies for eviction trials and a few new topics.
The day’s topics will be concluded by presentations by Terri Jane Freedman and Katharine Muscalino of the firm of Porzio, Bromberg and Newman, who will discuss the practical implications of a tenant who files for bankruptcy and pursuing collection actions against tenants, as well ethical issues. These discussions will provide vital information for landlords whose tenants vacate their dwellings without paying their rent.

The program is recommended for landlords, real estate professionals, property managers, caseworkers, and attorneys. For New Jersey attorneys seeking CLE credits, please be advised that this course has been approved for 8.0 credit hours (1.2 will be counted toward ethics/professionalism).
