That is $2.50 per trip, about the same as NJT. Unlike NJT monthly passes, which can be used on any NJT bus, you are limited to only the Gate 51 busses. They do not issue transfers should you need to make a connection nor do they offer senior discounts. The buses are dirty & many fail on the spot inspections for little things like brakes, insurance, improperly licensed drivers. But to each his own.


You are lumping a legitimate licensed transportation company that operates out of Port Authority in with people who buy a van and drive around picking up fares.

The Gate 51 buses are all Community Lines buses and are all properly insured, inspected, etc. Port Authority would not allow them to operate from the building otherwise.

Re: Tenant's Rights

It's a CALENDAR month notice in NJ, not 30 days.

30 days is a banking or business month, which is why you don't pay less rent in February (28 or 29 days) or more in December (31 days) than you do in April (30 days).

An October 1st notice would have given you a November 1st vacate date. A October 2nd or later notice would have given you a November 30th vacate date if he or she wants to be a stickler.

The landlord must make a good faith effort to re-rent the apartment. If he takes a few days to repaint or make a couple of repairs it won't count against him, but there is nothing stopping him from advertising the apartment before and during that time. He doesn't get to sit back and not do anything to mitigate his potential loss. If he fails to do that, it will count against him with a residential tenant. Commercial tenants, it depends, but residential tenants ... absolutely.

Take lots of photos when you move out to prove the condition of the apartment.

Re: Whole Foods in JC?

I am so going to be going to the Newark location. I'm sick of making the public transit trek to the Columbus Circle Whole Foods. Supposedly the Newark location prices will be cheaper.

Two year wait though.

I would totally mind sharing a toilet with my neighbors, lol.

I have seen floor plans for similar spaces and they have nice little kitchens and a full bathroom.

When I was in my 20's, I left very early in the morning for work and worked a lot of hours - usually until somewhere between 7 and 9 pm, went out after work with co-workers for a late dinner or drinks a few nights a week and out with friends once or twice a week; slept until 1:00 pm on Saturday, went out for brunch, did my shopping and ran errands, spent time with my boyfriend, was out all day Sunday, crashed early on Sunday night and rinse and repeat. I was home mostly for sleep, showering and changing clothes.

I really don't see people paying those rent ranges as ruining the neighborhood and being a danger. I see young professionals starting out and middle age professionals starting over, new to the area or not wanting to be encumbered with debt or insane rents along with people who are just plain ok with not having 2,500 sq ft for a single person.

No. Buyers make their own financial decisions and are responsible for knowing what they are getting into, same with their mortgage.

Did you request the financials or budget? Minutes from meetings?

The master deed would have come in with your title search and would have listed the association. The by-laws may have also stated that after a certain number of units were sold or after a certain date, the owners would have to elect a new board themselves.

"That would reset the sale date in the public record online."

I have no idea what online public record you are looking at, but I would suggest you try using the statewide assessment search site. Change the default settings to Huson, etc and look up your property. You will find out a lot more info.

http://tax1.co.monmouth.nj.us/cgi-bin ... ata&district=0801&mode=11

Then do a corporate name search on the NJ website and pay $6.25 to see if the status has been revoked on the association and who the registered agent is.

Call up your title company (their name will be on your owners policy and on your HUD), give them the file # and ask them to e-mail you the binder if they still have it in their system. The master deed, along with almost everything you need to know, will be in there.

325 to 350 sq ft is perfect for many single people, especially with what looks to be a full wall window. They aren't going to be raising a family in those apartments, but for one, it's a great idea. Most people think they need a lot more space than they really do.

I do think they are a bit pricey though.

Re: Landlord Stole Money: Is it Legal?

P.S. No need to worry about where their bank is or collecting. Landlords are the easiest people to collect from in the world. They own property and have tenants. You can file for a rent execution if they don't pay.

The tenants will be notified that they have to pay their rent to the court officer, who will then send you a check less his 10% fee.

It's going to depend on a combination of two things; your lease and the law. No one here can read your lease and ask you all the right questions based upon what little you have written.

Security deposit cases are often done on a contingency basis and you may have a counterclaim for the rent.

You should really make an appointment for a consultation with a good L/T lawyer to find out exactly where you stand and help you file properly so you don't screw yourself.

No one ever remembers Rafael Torres killing his wife and 7 of their kids in the apartment behind their store at 347 Palisade Ave in 1969. I could never figure out how he managed to do it in the middle of the afternoon since most of the kids were teenagers. Only one managed to get away.

Re: Jersey City apartment with raw sewage, no heat, and hole in ceiling..

It's gone on for so long because rather than focusing on the issues and the best possible outcome, they have been focusing on how much they hate each other and on "winning" no matter how destructive it is.

These situations don't go on for 10 years unless there are psychological issues involved. Brewsterpretty much outlined the process.

P.S. The sewage isn't in their apartment. It floods into the basement when it backs up. They don't live in the basement.

When I lived downtown, during heavy rain, sometimes the sewer line in the basement backed up. Disgusting but it would drain back down. A bottle of bleach and a scrub broom would fix whatever was left afterwards. Everyone we brought in said there wasn't much we could do about it.

Re: JC landlord registration?
#13

It's not a political move as the landlord registration has been part of the municipal code for a very long time.

If you had to take your tenant to court for non-payment, you wouldn't be able to evict them without the registration unless you are the landlord of an owner occupied two or three family house (the only exemption to the registration in JC).

It's always fun to see the "special snowflake" landlords who think the law doesn't apply to them get their cases rescheduled. The court tells you to bring the registration with you but every time I go, there are always landlords who feel the registration act doesn't apply to them.

The fee is what, $10? Register and be done with it.

Re: JERSEY CITY 911 OPERATORS AND COPS BLAMED IN $200M LAWSUIT

In the late 1980's, I dialed 911 when I was awakened by an intruder coming through my window.

The police never even showed up. In the morning, I called Glenn Cunningham and he got a squad car sent over.

I wouldn't count on 911 in JC for anything. Completely useless.
