Hire a personal injury lawyer for your dog bite and your dog's medical bills. Ask your termination of lease issues. I am NOT a NJ lawyer, but it seems to me you have grounds to immediately terminate the lease. Hope these things were reported to the police and animal control...
As Mr. Fenster stated, I too am not a NJ attorney. I am not a real estate attorney , either. However, a failure to disclose a material fact may be sufficient to void the lease. But you need to see a land lord tenant attorney.
In the interim, get a TRO as to the neighbor re the dogs. Maybe the LL will help, especially if you stay.
I think you have options and should rationally explore them, though quickly.
The above is not intended as legal advice. The response does not constitute the creation of an attorney client relationship as this forum does not provide for a confidential communication.
The issue about whether a tenant has justifiable grounds to terminate a lease prematurely is fact-sensitive and evaluated by the court based on a set of factors. A summary of landlord-tenant law, including the set of those factors, is available through Legal Services of New Jersey at:
