Provisions regarding costs for repairing or altering property are supremely important because of the property’s potential size and these provisions potentially triggering or negating other provisions in the lease.


Parole evidence challenges can successfully subject a properly written and legally binding lease. New Jersey Statute of Fraud provisions have a timeline of 3 years. The lease should spell out any exclusive use provisions for the premises. The lease should provide who controls what parts of the property.


An often-overlooked issue with reviewing, drafting, negotiating and/or finalizing lease agreements involving real property, are the potential tax avoidance and/or tax compliance issues. This should not be given off minimal importance in any situation, and especially within New Jersey, which arguably has the highest property tax bills in the country, and one of the highest State income tax rates among the 50 States.


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?
