Since commercial landlords and tenants have so many contractual freedoms, they should negotiate hot water and janitorial expenses. A party that fails to properly plan approaching a commercial lease will waste much time reviewing and negotiate the lease later on.


Construing leases is often a matter of law. A jury will rarely resort to the parole evidence rule. Net leases often protect the landlord’s interests. New Jersey real property law does NOT include personal property.


Increasingly, tenants and landlords understand (especially due to Covid 19 pandemic) with have well-thought out, carefully planned for, meticulously drafted, diligently scrutinized and legally executable and self enforceable lease contract agreements.

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: Should any pertaining lease documents be filed as a public recordation?  Is it possible to make a county-specific public recordation of the pertaining lease documents? Is it permissible to have the lease be freely assignable?
