heard in the county where the rental is located. So if you are getting
evicted, for example in Manalapan, your case, or forms, will be in the
Monmouth County Landlord Tenant court, located in Freehold.

TO OBTAIN A CERTIFICATE OF OCCUPANCY (CO)
A municipality may require by ordinance
that a landlord cannot rent a unit unless the
landlord first obtains a Certificate of
Occupancy (also known as a "C.O.") from
the municipality. Check with the local Health
or Building Department. A C.Ois a procedure to ensure that
rental units meet code standards before they
are rented. Failure by a landlord to
obtain a C.O may be used
to show that the conditions in the apartment
are poor and violates the landlord's duty to
provide habitable housing. (In theory). So
landlords - protect yourself!. Follow your
local municipalities building and fire codes
as required for rentals.
