New Jersey Eviction Notice Forms (2)

Updated August 17, 2023

A New Jersey eviction notice is a letter sent by a landlord seeking to inform a tenant of a lease violation. The landlord must detail the offense and include the number (#) of days the tenant has to correct the issue. This is most commonly for late rent but can be for any non-compliance with the lease or property rules. If the tenant does not fix the issue, the landlord can claim damages in the Special Civil Part Clerk Offices by filing an Unlawful Entry and Detainer lawsuit.

By Type (2)

Notice to Quit (For All Violation Types)– Check the box on the document to the violation that matches the tenant’s non-compliance:

Lease Violation – If the tenant violated a particular term or condition in the rental contract it shall be stated with the right to cure or vacate within thirty (30) days.

Verified Complaint – After proper notice has been given to a tenant, the landlord may pursue a formal eviction by filing a verified complaint with the court. If the complaint is for reasons other than non-payment of rent, additional notices must be attached to the form to explain the landlord’s justification for the eviction.

Summons – This document must be filed along with the complaint and served upon the tenant once a hearing date has been set. Its purpose is to inform the tenant of the action against them and give them the opportunity to present their side of the case.

1. Serve Notice to Tenant

If the tenant has failed to pay rent, the landlord does not have to give notice to the tenant and may proceed to step 2 immediately. If there is another type of breach, the landlord must send this notice to the tenant: Notice to Quit (For All Violation Types)

2. File Complaint and Summons

If the tenant has failed to pay rent or the tenant has failed to respond appropriately to the notice sent by the landlord, the landlord may then proceed to the Special Civil Part Clerk Offices to file a Complaint and Summons and pay a fee.

3. Serve Papers on Tenant

The court will serve the tenant and the landlord will receive a notice of when to appear in court.

4. Receive Court Judgment

If the tenant defaults and/or the landlord prevails in court, the landlord will get a Judgment for Possession. He then must apply for a Warrant for Possession to empower the sheriff to assist in removing the tenant.
