Landlord Registration Notice
TOWNSHIP OF ROCKAWAY
NOTICE TO OWNERS AND TENANTS OF RESIDENTIAL RENTAL PROPERTY
State law (N.J.S.A. 46:8-27 et seq.) imposes an obligation on landlords (owners) of residential rental properties containing one or two non-owner occupied dwelling units to file a Landlord Registration Form with the Municipal Clerk. The contents of the Landlord Registration Form are mandated by law.
Copies of the Landlord Registration Form are available at the office of the Rockaway Township Clerk or can be downloaded from the Township website. The form only needs to be filed once unless there is a change in ownership of a residential rental property or any of the information contained in the originally filed form has changed. Copies of the Landlord Registration Form must be provided to every tenant. A filing fee of $100 is payable to the Township of Rockaway on the initial filing. The fee for filing an amended form is $25.00.
Enforcement of this statute will commence effective January 1, 2023. Failure to file the Landlord Registration Form may result in a penalty of not more than $500 for each offense (N.J.S.A. 46:8-35).
