Your first stop: a step-by-step guide to renting
A well-informed tenant is more confident in his or her approach to finding a home. Start by browsing my resources for tenants here, which include a complete guide to renting that will answer almost any question you have about the renting process.
Know your legal rights and obligations as a tenant
Landlords and tenants are bound by New Jersey laws. A copy of the NJ Truth in Renting booklet can be viewed and downloaded here. Take the time to go over everything in it—most legal questions are addressed clearly.
A lease is a legal contract
Leases may vary, but they are all regulated by New Jersey laws. View a standard lease used by Realtors here to see what one looks like and exactly what is covered by a rental agreement. NOTE: this is a sample lease; a private landlord will use a different form of this contract, but the language in it is still governed by law.
