New Jersey landlord/tenant law. How much (percentage) can a landlord increase the rent if it is a house with 3 units (3 apartments/dwellings), and the landlord does not reside on the premises? His daughter recently moved into one of the apartments. Is it 5% or 6% per year or is there no limit to what the landlord can increase in rent?



where in NJ? certain areas still have some form of rent controls...

But in 95% of the country outide of NYC and certain areas of Californication..

The landlord has NO LIMIT as to what they can charge....

BUT they must give the tenant 30 days, or 60 day notice if you have 2 months security or paid last months rent.If you are a month to month tenant or before the lease ends..

Before ANY increase can take effect and the days start counting when the next rent day is...

So if the landlord gave you a 30 day notice for an increase or to move today, and you normally pay your rent on the 1st you wont have to be out until july 31st, and the new rent cant start untill Aug 1st.
