The Law Office of Justine A. Zeppone provides representation in both commercial and residential tenancies ranging from simple negotiations to complex eviction litigation in Bergen, Essex, Passaic, Morris and Union counties. Over the years, representation of these parties has afforded our office the expertise to handle almost any matter in this area of law. Our client base includes large management companies as well as individual Landlords who are just entering the business. Although, the concerns for Landlords and Tenants, large companies and regular people are diverse and different, all will receive special individual attention regarding their matter from our staff.

Landlords often contact our office with questions such as: Can I change the locks if my tenant does not pay the rent? How do I evict my tenant if he is involved in criminal activity? Tenants as well want to be informed on their property interest rights and how to resolve certain habitability or maintenance issues with their units. Our staff can answer these and other common questions that arise during the course of a residential or commercial lease in a speedy manner. Our firm also recognizes the immediate attention that all evictions require. The slightest delay in processing an eviction complaint will result in lost profits.

We represent landlords and property managers on lease agreements in commercial and residential matters. Our services include drafting and amending leases, resolving lease disputes and bringing eviction actions to remove a tenant and/or collect a money judgment for unpaid rent or damage to the property.
