Removal of Non-Tenants

Do you want someone to stop using a home or land you own?

New Jersey Statute N.J.S.A. 2A:35-1 gives the right to any one claiming possession of real property to have his or her rights determined by the Superior Court. This can include compelling someone on or using your land to leave the property. This is called an action for ejectment.

Ejectment cannot be used against a bona fide commercial or residential tenant. Entirely different statutes and case law controls evictions of commercial and residential tenant.

Ejectment is sometimes used to resolve boundary disputes between landowners or by successful foreclosure sale buyers to remove the former property or home owners when they refuse to leave.

Before trying to remove someone from your property, always consult with an experienced attorney. There are serious risks to be avoided. Contact our office today to discuss your options. 


Initial meetings with an attorney should be more than a “meet and greet” session. Often, real progress toward a possible solution can be made. Your first consultation with Bill Wolfson is offered free of charge. We invite you to schedule it today so that you can get immediate answers to your most pressing questions.
