Yes, though how CAM and tax expenses may be shared varies among local legal practices. Unlike with residential leases, case laws are more pronounced with commercial leases. A party that fails to properly plan a commercial lease will waste much time reviewing and negotiate the lease later on.


Under unique or exceptional circumstances, it may be better for parties to enter into an oral lease. New Jersey real property law does NOT include personal property.

Depending on the situation, it may be the case, that commercial and residential landlords, may be subjectable to reporting rent roll receipt figures, in some way, shape and/or form.  Whether or not a New Jersey real property owner is subject to that requirement, could extenuate other issues, as it pertains to the points raised by this legal-guide article's title.


The practical restraints brought on to the operations of the New Jersey Judiciary System by the Coronavirus-related shutdowns, may have made much of the substance of this brief analysis, an incomplete and/or incorrect generalized explanation, of what is an already heavily technical and complicated topical area, within the study of jurisprudence.


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?


Our firm can help you draft, review, negotiate, and execute any type of New Jersey real property lease agreement. We are open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. We offer prospective clients both exhaustive and comprehensive leasing law practice services, including the following:
