New Jersey Property and Real Estate Laws

Property and real estate law includes homestead protection from creditors; relationships between landlords and tenants; and other matters pertaining to one's home or residence. Property and real estate laws also include zoning regulations, which determine which kinds of structures may be built in a given location. In New Jersey, for example, a landlord may only charge one and a half month's rent for a security deposit, and the deposit must be returned to the tenant within 30 days after the termination of the lease.
