A New Jersey Notice to Quit (For All Violation Types) is a document that handles a tenant when they are in violation of the lease. Its use is to specifically notify them of the violation.

3 Types of Notices

  1. Failure to pay rent on time – Statutory notice to quit is not required. However, 30 days’ notice is common practice due to the noted reason that follows. In the event a tenant fails to pay rent, the landlord may terminate their rental agreement given this notice at any time. Note: If a tenant accepts partial rent after the rent becomes late, the landlord must give the tenant thirty (30) days’ notice to pay the rent in full.
  2. Not obeying the terms of the lease – 30 days. When serving a tenant for not obeying the terms of the lease, notice must be at least 30 days.
  3. Disorderly conduct – 3 days. If the tenant is becoming a nuisance to other members of the property, 3 days notice is required for them to vacate.
