Multifamily Inspections: Restore Commonsense and Balance to Multifamily Inspections in New Jersey

A-3835 (Ryan/Jasey/Cryan) and S-2795 (Van Drew/Oroho) clarifies state law to restore common-sense and balance to a comprehensive registration/regulation/inspection system that has, for nearly 45 years, served renters and the public well. It aligns and clarifies various statutes to make the State solely responsible for establishing and enforcing registration, maintenance, use, and inspection standards for rental properties of 3 or more units and prevents municipalities from imposing additional registration, licensure or inspection schemes on properties already registered with and inspected by the State.See NJAA Position

Water Conservation: Encourage Conservation by Sub-Metering Water Usage

Residents who pay for their own water use less. Understanding one’s usage is necessary in order to reduce both the amount of water used and the amount they are billed for. This enables residents to directly reduce the cost by reducing the amount used.See NJAA Position
