The parol evidence rule is procedural law (the way evidence is admitted in court). Generally, it is not substantive law (the actual claims disputed). Such rules are construed from statutes by judges. This legal guide assumes the parties involved are NOT dealing in any “roomer”-type agreements (including seasonal and temporary occupancies). New Jersey black letter law construes leases based on contract law doctrines.

 

The Constitution allows wide freedoms to contract or not to contract. As the default, courts construe commercial leases in a way that honors the intentions of the contracting parties.



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 of the 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?
