The New Jersey 3-day notice to quit for property damage allows landlords to terminate rental agreements with three (3) days’ notice to the tenant for causing damage to the premises. Under state law, if a tenant damages any part of the landlord’s property, whether it is done deliberately or not, the landlord can cancel their lease. If the tenant does not move out within three (3) days of receiving the notice to quit, the landlord can begin legal action to have them evicted from the property.
