PUBLIC SERVICE NOTICE - On March 19, 2020, NJ Governor Philip Murphy issued Executive Order 106 which immediately suspends residential evictions throughout the state for non-payment of rent. This is called an eviction moratorium and means that no residential tenant may be removed from their home as a result of an eviction due to non-payment of rent. This order does not eliminate rent owed or late fees, it just means your landlord cannot remove you from your home during the time the moratorium is in effect. For more information, please visit Information on Rental Property and Evictions under Executive Order 106 + Landlord Complaint Form (nj.gov). For information about the CDC Order in effect, please visit https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/covid-eviction-declaration.html
