You do not have to evict them. NJ landlord/tenant law states that without a lease all you have to do is give 30 days notice. Then, if they don't leave, you will have to evict them.
If it comes to the point that you have to evict them and you own as a corporation ,you will need an attorney. If you own as an individual, you just go to the courthouse to file an eviction notice.... more

Lina , as for cost this can vary greatly depending upon specs of work, quality of fixtures etc. As stated make certain you get all permits. Get multiple quotes and ask for references. Check those references. A bathroom could cost a couple of thousand or many times that. (1/2 bath vs full, prefab shower vs custom with whirl pool tub etc) Will you be insulating? Will you need to upgrade systems there currently such as electrical panel or hvac? You may have to maintain access to valves etc. Before you go too far down the road I suggest you check around your area to see what value this will add and keep this in mind when planning your work. You dont want to spend 30 or 40K to finish basement where most homes spent 10K (unless you plan to stay a very long time)... more

As a former home builder, I would advise extreme caution. Hire a structural engineer to assess the foundation's structural integrity, and an architect to determine if the existing footing will be capable of the load bearing capacity of the new home. The foundation is the most important part of a home, Problems with that will be very costly.

The buzz was that in order to cut back on municipal services, the state might mandate that some smaller towns merge their police & fire departments, not the towns or town governments. The rumor flies every so often but i cannot even see that happening.... more
