JA: Hi. How can I help?
Customer: My brother and have tenants that have continuously missed rental payments. They are currently on a month-to-month lease agreement. We want next month (July) to be the final month they’re here. Our objective is to have them: A. Successfully pay the month’s rent in full for this upcoming July. & B. Have them leave the premises before the 1st of August. What would be the best way to legally ensure this happens (besides going through an official eviction process)? Perhaps the the best way to ensure these two objectives would be to have them sign a lease termination agreement before the 1st of July? Does having them pay in July prevent us from having them legally leave the unit before the 1st of August?
JA: Some laws are different depending where you are, so could you clarify what state your brother is in?
Customer: My brother and I* We live in NJ
JA: Thanks for all these details. What steps have you taken so far?
Customer: We just had a sit down with them to chat things over. We did not agree on anything official but would like to present them with something official now to ensure the process goes as smoothly as possible.
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: YEs I have two other questiions:
