We have just been made aware that our tenant in NJ made false statements on his lease application. Would this void the lease?

Sunnyvale, CA |

If so, would we have the right to evict him from the premises?

  1. This is a question of New Jersey law, about which I make no claims of knowledge.

    Speaking generally, you would have a right to evict him under two circumstances. First, you could evict him if the lease stated that any misrepresentation on the application would be a breach of the lease. Second, you could evict him if the misrepresentation somehow caused you damage.

    Consult New Jersey counsel.
