2015 New Jersey Revised Statutes
Title 27 - HIGHWAYS
Section 27:16-65 - Award; payment into court; appeal
27:16-65. Award; payment into court; appeal
If an uncertainty exists as to who is entitled to the amount awarded, or if the board of chosen freeholders is unable to tender the award by reason of the incapacity or absence of any person entitled thereto, or if there exists an unsatisfied lien upon the property to be taken, or any person refuses to receive the award, or an appeal from the award is taken, it may be paid into the Superior Court and shall be distributed to the person entitled thereto according to law. Payment into the Superior Court shall operate to stop the running of interest upon an award thereafter made to the amount of the deposit.
The owner or owners or the board of chosen freeholders of the county, feeling aggrieved by an award for any real estate taken for any such improvement, may appeal to the Superior Court at any time within sixty days after the filing of the report in the office of the county clerk or register of deeds, as the case may be. The appeal shall be taken by bringing an action in the court in accordance with chapter one of the Title Eminent Domain (s. 20:1-1 et seq.) of the Revised Statutes to have the court award the damages anew. The completion of the improvement shall not be delayed thereby and the county may proceed with the improvement as though the appeal had not been taken.
Amended by L.1953, c. 27, p. 495, s. 20.
