Natashagresh…, Renter in New Jersey

Is this right or legal?

Asked by Natashagresham, New Jersey Tue Oct 23, 2012

If I paid my back rent and am left to pay fees, shouldnt the warrant of removal be lifted? And also am I responsible for theyre lawyer fees? And court fees if we never saw a judge?

Help the community by answering this question:


If you paid your back rent and all past due late fees, attorney fees, etc before your court date, then just take the proof to court with you.
If you went to court and did not pay the money you owed, a warrant of removal was probably issued.
Your lease will tell you whether or not you are responsible for lawyer and or any other legal fees. NJAR leases do hold the tenant liable for those fees.
If you would like a copy of the NJ landlord/tenant handbook that explains your rights under the law, just message me and I'll email you a copy.

Your landlord may have in the lease attorney fees costs etc. and holding you to it.

court fees are assesed by the court not necessarily by a judge.

If you didnt have a lawyer before you should get one now or at least talk with your landlord if you are trying to reconcile.
