A New Jersey 30-day notice to quit (non-compliance) is a formal document used by landlords when a tenant breaches lease terms. It serves as an initial warning detailing the specific violation.
For non-compliance issues such as unauthorized pets, late rent payments, or prohibited smoking, the landlord must first issue a notice to cease, requiring the tenant to rectify the violation within a set time. Failure to comply can lead to a 1-month notice to quit, giving the tenant 30 days to vacate the property. Non-adherence to this notice can result in eviction proceedings initiated by the landlord.
