Landlord/Tenant Relations and How We Can Help
Here at DiFrancia & Price, we understand that, unfortunately, landlord and tenant relations can become tenuous at times. However, our firm has handled dozens of cases representing both sides of the aisle.
Many of our cases focus on security deposits from the side of the tenant.
When a landlord takes a security deposit from tenants, the landlord must notify the tenants, in writing and within 30 days of receiving the deposit, of the name and address of the bank in which the security is deposited. If the landlord fails to provide that the tenant can have the security deposit applied to the tenant's rent and the landlord cannot exact another deposit as long as the tenant remains in the unit. (N.J.S.A. 46:8-19.)
With that said, if, as a tenant, you're having this issue currently, we advise you to come in for a free consultation to see how we can help you.
