I’m nearing the completion of my first two-family unit and want to assemble an agreement of conditions for tenants to sign and abide by, such as no pets, no sub-letting, no junker cars on property, no piles of junk on property, no window coverings other than shades or curtains, etc. I want the places to remain respectable and clean. I want good relations with my property’s neighbors. I also want to reserve the right to do a walk thru my units each month while I am there to pick up my check.

As a landlord in NJ, what are my rights and what can I have the tenants legally agree to? Along these lines begs the question about evictions? Certainly any tips from the trenches would be appreciated also.

Thanks in advance :slight_smile:
