Eviction is a process that landlords can use to remove tenants from a rental property. In New Jersey, the laws governing evictions are specific and it is important to understand the process before taking action. This guide will provide a basic overview of the eviction process in New Jersey, as well as provide links to additional resources.

Understanding the Eviction Process in New Jersey

The eviction process in New Jersey begins with a notice to the tenant that specifies the reason for the eviction. The type of notice varies depending on the reason for the eviction and the tenant’s length of occupancy. After the notice is served, the tenant has a certain number of days to either pay the rent or move before the landlord can file an eviction action in court.

Going to Court

If the tenant does not pay the rent or move by the date specified in the notice, the landlord can file an eviction action in court. The court will set a hearing date for the landlord and tenant to present their cases. Depending on the judge’s decision, the tenant may be given a certain amount of time to pay the rent or vacate the property.

Appeal Process

If the tenant is not satisfied with the outcome of the court hearing, they have the right to appeal the decision. The tenant must file a Notice of Appeal with the court within 20 days of the hearing. The tenant can also request a jury trial.


Eviction is a complicated process and it is important to understand the laws and procedures in New Jersey. It is essential for landlords and tenants alike to be aware of the steps and requirements of the eviction process in order to ensure that their rights are protected.
