You should also get a copy of Truth in Renting to know what your responsibilities are as a landlord in NJ. Your agent should be able to provide you with a copy, or reach me via Trulia or my website below and I'd be happy to send you out one.

There is no one place to get all the information you need. You need to get with the borough and make sure the place is legal to rent ( http://www.wildwoodcrest.org/ ) and then you will want to find an agent that will represent you in your absence. You know: for scheduled turn overs, advertising, deposit holds and releases, clean outs, collecting rents with properly worded lease agreements that a judge will accept in court. All little things - did you have an ROI done on the property? Make sure it has a reasonable number to repair and replace furniture. Property taxes, association and management fees, utilities and beach badges are a few items to consider when looking at physical structure repairs that always need updating.

Hoping all your expectations are met. Good Luck.

Yes this is all good information! You should also realize that NJ is a very tenant friendly state. That means it is difficult for a landlord to get bad yearly tenants out. Chose your tenants carefully! Good credit is an absolute must! If you can, get reference letters from past landlords. It may take a little longer to rent doing this but in the end you'll be thankful you did! If you are counting on the rent to pay your mortgage and your tenants stop paying, you can loose your property, your investment and your credit rating!

Did you already buy?
YEs! Then you need

to get a rental room license. That is the 1st most important thing. (City)

Make sure your insurance will cover you for liability

Get a contract together

No need for tenancy laws and all that unless you are renting monthly seasonally or yearly, if you are renting weekly you have no tenancy that is where your contract will com e in to play,

Make a plan to how you get your rentals advertise, got your local realtors See FASY Ask for Joe or Annn they do a great job, David Green does a nice job also. OCeaniside makes you pay a $175 fee for a virtual tour but is one time only and they get good rentals and they take credit cards for you.

Any question call me .

Hi J,

My first place to start would be a good accountant to see what your goals are and how to structure the acquisition. As far as the details on the property itself, I would be available for a consultation.
