Final Report Relating to Landlord and Tenant Law (February 10, 2012): A report prepared by the New Jersey Law Revision Commission. The New Jersey Law Revision Commission is required by statute to "promote and encourage the clarification and simplification of the law…and its better adaptation to present social needs, secure the better administration of justice and carry on scholarly legal research and work" (N.J.S.A. 1:12A-8). The Commission does so by conducting an ongoing review of New Jersey statutes and case law to identify areas of the law that require revision. The Commission also considers recommendations from the American Law Institute, the Uniform Law Commission (formerly the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws) and other learned bodies as well as members of the legal community and the public.
