On March 19, 2020, Governor Murphy issued Executive Order No. 106, which states that any lessee, tenant, homeowner or any other person shall not be removed from a residential property as the result of an eviction or foreclosure proceeding.
The eviction moratorium will last until two months after Governor Murphy declares an end to the COVID-19 health crisis, unless the Governor issues another Executive Order to end it sooner.
If anyone is at risk of eviction or are concerned about paying rent, they can use this online eviction moratorium information and question tool to see their rights and what assistance programs are available.
Those facing eviction or potential foreclosure, may contact a housing counselor immediately online or by call 1-800-NJ-HOUSE.
