Landlords should be wary of whether or to what extent they allow tenants to assign the premises. Real property does NOT include personal property.


Courts will NOT construe a lease in a way that leads to absurd results. A triple net lease is a type of net let lease. The lease should spell out any exclusive use provisions for the premises.

With regards to rental lease agreements in New Jersey, it goes without saying that zoning variance type of lawsuits can be a very time consuming, infuriating ant expensive adventure to the unwary.  Landlords and tenants (especially, when dealing with commercial-use real property premises) should be mindful of not only their planned use actions with regards of the premises, but also of those of their surroundings.


The law as it pertains to lease contracts in New Jersey, may have changed and/or continue to evolve, during the legal changes brought on by Covid 19.  It is perhaps worth mentioning that even before the spread of the Coronavirus in the U.S., New Jersey Landlord/Tenant laws and real property leasing laws, were considered highly esoteric and by many were a sign of a much need legal reform.


To better assist in a quest of further analyzing this type of question(s) as revolving per this legal guide article, it may be useful to make additional inquiries, such as: Is it legal or practical to allow tenants to sublease? Are the premises that include rent or occupancy use complaint with recent building code regulations?  Should the lease contain specific clauses regarding issues with security deposits?
