Lawyers should look at the New Jersey Statute of Fraud’s underlying legal authorities to decode NJSF lease provisions, turning abstract legal concepts to applied legal theories.

A triple net lease is a type of net let lease. All triple net leases are net leases, but not all net leases are triple net leases. Landlords often favor net leases because they absolve landlords from duties to maintain the property. There may be New Jersey case laws where an informal memorandum functions as a legally binding and enforceable written lease.

Constitutional provisions, especially the 13th Amendment, may work as a practical restrain with regards to landlords, having the ability to construct too overbearing/one-sided lease agreements, under the auspices of the freedom to contract.

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the laws revolving New Jersey leases, in many ways. Trying to account for all COVID-19 legal changes within this subtropical practice area will not only be an unrealistically ambitious venture but likely futile.

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: Should special zoning classification uses or restrictions be included in New Jersey real property leases, accounting for such uses by the tenant(s)?  Has the lease been reviewed and revised to account for any recent relevant changes in New Jersey law?Do any rent regulation laws apply to the lease?
