Ms. Patterson addressed a landlord’s obligations to its tenants, under the warranty of habitability in the Garden State. Ms. Patterson advised that a New Jersey landlord must provide residents with functioning essential utilities (i.e. plumbing) at all times. Ms. Patterson provided various options for tenants who find themselves in a situation where a landlord is failing to make repairs in a timely manner.
