NJ Rev Stat § 2A:18-61.50 (2016) What's This?

2A:18-61.50. Termination of protected tenancy
11. a. The administrative agency shall terminate the protected tenancy status authorized under the provisions of this act immediately upon finding that:

(1) the dwelling unit is no longer the principal residence of the tenant, or

(2) the tenant's annual household income exceeds the maximum amount permitted for qualification.

b. Upon presentation to the administrative agency of credible evidence that a tenant is no longer qualified for protected tenancy status under this act, the administrative agency shall proceed, in accordance with such regulations and procedures as the department shall adopt and prescribe for use in such cases, to investigate and make a determination as to the continuance of that status.

c. Upon the termination of the protected tenancy status by the administrative agency, the tenant may be removed from the dwelling unit pursuant to P.L.1974, c.49 (C.2A:18-61.1 et al.), except that all notice and other times set forth therein shall be calculated and extend from the date of the expiration or termination of the protected tenancy period, or the date of the expiration of the last lease entered into with the tenant during the protected tenancy period, whichever shall be later.

d. Any protection afforded to a person under the "Senior Citizens and Disabled Protected Tenancy Act," P.L.1981, c.226 (C.2A:18-61.22 et al.) shall remain in full force and effect. If the administrative agency determines that a tenant is no longer qualified for protected tenancy under that act, the administrative agency shall proceed to determine the eligibility of that tenant under the "Tenant Protection Act of 1992," P.L.1991, c.509 (C.2A:18-61.40 et al.), or, in any case in which the administrative agency is not the same as the agency administering the "Tenant Protection Act of 1992" in the municipality, shall refer the case to the appropriate administrative agency for such determination. If the tenant is found by such determination to be eligible, his protected tenancy status shall be continued. The protected tenancy status of the tenant shall remain in full force pending such determination.
