Can a Landlord Enter Without Permission in New Jersey?

A New Jersey landlord must provide a “reasonable” amount of notification in advance of their admittance into a tenant’s unit. This notification represents permission on the tenant’s part and only applies in situations where the landlord is entering to perform a repair. In situations where the landlord is seeking permission to show the unit, their tenant can deny them entry unless their lease requires otherwise.

A New Jersey landlord may enter without permission in cases of emergency. However, this right of entry cannot and should not be abused to the point that it constitutes landlord harassment.
