The short answer is: Yes. Self-help evictions, not to be confused with Self-Representation, are illegal, even if justified. Landlords are required, by law, to follow a certain process in order to remove tenants from the property. Changing the locks, removing tenants’ personal belongings from the property, and shutting off utilities, are just a few examples of what NOT to do. A tenant can only be evicted by a special court officer with a Warrant for Removal issued by a court clerk, after an order has been entered with the court.
Unless you, the landlord or property manager, are an LLC or Corporation, you have the right to represent yourself. In doing so, you would be appearing “Pro Se.” You may complete and file the required forms, go through the legal process, and appear in court without an attorney. However, before you take that first step, make sure you fully understand the eviction process. One slip-up could cost you additional time and money.
A tenant may have several defenses in court. As the landlord or property manager, you want to make sure you are doing everything you are required to do under the law in order to successfully evict the tenant. A few common defenses that hold up in court are: failing to follow through each required step in the eviction process, not having a cause for eviction, refusing to provide the tenant with a home that is both safe and decent.
Attorney fees can range between five hundred and several thousands of dollars, depending on the complexity of your case. With FileEvictions, for a limited time, you can draft all of the documents needed in an eviction suit and manage your case, at no cost.
In New Jersey, an eviction process, from start to finish, can range between six weeks and six months, if not longer. Guiding you through your eviction, we eliminate common errors that are often the cause for delays.
FileEvictions currently allows for creating a Delinquent Notice to the tenant. Appended to the notice will be a Verified Complaint and Summons, populated with the information submitted by you. You will be able to download the Delinquent Notice, and send it to the tenant as the first step in the Eviction process. From experience of other landlords, sending the Delinquent Letter to the tenant shows you are serious about the non-payment of rent, and in the majority of the cases causes the tenant to pay all arrears, without actually filing the Complaint.
