When one party breaches a commercial lease, the following questions may arise:

Does the non-breaching party have a duty to mitigate damages? If yes, to what extent? Unlike with residential leases, case laws are more pronounced with commercial leases. This legal guide assumes the parties involved are NOT dealing in any “roomer”-type agreements, including seasonal and temporary occupancies.

 

Parole evidence challenges can successfully subject a properly written and legally binding lease. There may be New Jersey case laws where an informal memorandum functions as a legally binding and enforceable written lease.

 

Depending on the situation, it may be the case, that commercial and residential landlords, may be subject-able in reporting rent roll receipt figures, in some way, shape and/or form.  Whether or not a New Jersey real property owner is subject to that requirement, could extenuate other issues, as it pertains to the points raised by this legal-guide article's title.

 

The practical restraints brought on to the operations of the New Jersey Judiciary System by the Coronavirus-related shutdowns, may have made much of the substance of this brief analysis, an incomplete and/or incorrect generalized explanation, of what is an already heavily technical and complicated topical area, within the study of jurisprudence.

 

To better assist in a quest of further analyzing this type of question(s) as revolving per this legal guide article, it may be useful to make additional inquiries, such as: Is it legal or practical to allow tenants to sublease? Are the premises that include rent or occupancy use complaint with recent building code regulations? Should the lease contain specific clauses regarding issues with security deposits?
