4. a. Lease terminations pursuant to section 3 of P.L.2008, c.111 (C.46:8-9.6) shall take effect on the thirtieth day following receipt by the landlord of notice complying with section 3 of P.L.2008, c.111 (C.46:8-9.6), unless the landlord and tenant agree on an earlier termination date. The rent shall be paid, pro rata, up to the time a lease terminates pursuant to this section.

b.A lease terminates under section 3 of P.L.2008, c.111 (C.46:8-9.6) only if the victim of domestic violence acts in good faith and fulfills all requirements and procedures as established by section 3 of P.L.2008, c.111 (C.46:8-9.6) in terminating the lease.

c.If there are tenants on the lease other than the tenant who has given notice of termination as described in section 3 of P.L.2008, c.111 (C.46:8-9.6), those co-tenants' lease also terminates, notwithstanding any provisions in section 2 of P.L.1974, c.49 (C.2A:18-61.1) requiring certain grounds for eviction to the contrary. The co-tenants may enter into a new lease, for a new term, at the option of the landlord. Nothing in this section shall prohibit any co-tenants of the victim of domestic violence from holding over if holding over is permitted by the landlord.
