Yes, under certain conditions. Real property contracts may be subject to various regulations that do not apply to other business contracts. Real property does NOT include personal property. New Jersey real property law does NOT include personal property. In New Jersey, chattel is typically NOT considered real property. Leases with governmental parties are beyond the scope of this legal guide.



Public policy favors allowing for more freedom to contract with regards to leases dealing with commercial use and commercial business tenants, as opposed to leases dealing with residential unit type of spaces which would presumably be utilized by tenants for habitation.



The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the laws revolving New Jersey leases, in many ways. Trying to account for all COVID-19 legal changes within this subtropical practice area will not only be an unrealistically ambitious venture but likely futile.

 

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: Should special zoning classification uses or restrictions be included in New Jersey real property leases, accounting for such uses by the tenant(s)?  Has the lease been reviewed and revised to account for any recent relevant changes in New Jersey law? Do any rent regulation laws apply to the lease?
