Before you telephone and ask your question, please consider this:

NJTO can answer your questions because it receives "funding" from tenants who realize the importance of keeping this organization in existence.  Therefore, we can only answer your questions if you join NJTO by paying  $25.00 for one year's membership.  

When you become a member, NJTO will gladly teach you about your rights as a tenant, and about strategies that have proven effective in solving the kinds of problems that you may currently face.   Click here,  print and fill out the form.  Enclose your check or money order for membership dues or used the credit/debit card buttons above.

Then, contact NJTO and we will gladly answer all your questions and give you guidance, education and strategies that apply to your situation as a tenant.
About NJTO:

The New Jersey Tenants Organization (NJTO) is the  oldest, largest statewide tenant membership organization in the United States.

NJTO has been successful in lobbying at the state level for tenants rights and affordable housing. NJTO has a history of endorsing political candidates who are pro-tenant.

While NJTO works at the state level, it also assists in organizing affiliated building, city, and county tenant organizations throughout the state of New Jersey.  NJTO provides tenants with a basic education about their rights and gives guidance to tenants who are dues paying members.
                
Over the last 38 years, NJTO has changed New Jersey from one of the worst states for tenants to (arguably) the best.  A body of State laws has been passed because of the NJTO.  NJTO was also successful in establishing the basic rights of tenants to organize through a series of major court decisons.  

NJTO is the driving force behind the movement for municipal rent control in New Jersey (approximately 115 municipalities have rent control laws -- far more than any other state).  From eviction protection to security deposit protection to recognition of tenants as taxpayers to rent control and affordable housing, NJTO has changed New Jersey's tenants from tenth class citizens (little more than serfs) to second class citizens.  We have a long way to go, but we have come farther than anywhere else.

NOTE:   
NJTO DOES NOT PROVIDE LEGAL REPRESENTATION OR LEGAL ADVICE.  IF YOUR SITUATION REALLY CALLS FOR AN ATTORNEY OR YOU  WANT ONE, NJTO CAN RECOMMEND ATTORNEYS WHO SPECIALIZE IN LANDLORD/TENANT LAW.
ARCHIVE

NJTO declares
VICTORY!
in defending 
tenants rights! 

Tenants now have equal rights in getting legal expenses paid if tenants win in court.  It's only fair!  If landlords have this right (written into the lease) tenants should have it too.
