DOWNLOADABLE FORMS

The governing body of the Township of Belleville in April of 1974, April, 1976 and October, 1978 found and affirmed that a housing crisis existed and that the demand for increases in rent were exorbitant, speculative and unfair, and the governing body of the Township found and declared that under the police powers granted to the Mayor and Board of  Commissioners of the Township under N.J.S.A. 40: 48-2, in order to protect and promulgate the health and welfare of the citizens of the Township, a rent leveling board was declared to be necessary within the Township, and the governing body thereafter adopted an ordinance referred to in the title hereof for the purpose of regulating rents.

The Rent Leveling Board consists of two landlords, two tenants, and three single family homeowners.   The Alternate members shall consist of a landlord, a tenant and a single family homeowner.

RENT INCREASES

Establishment of rents between a landlord and a tenant to whom this section is applicable, shall hereafter be determined by the provisions of the Rent Leveling Ordinance 12-12.  At the expiration of a lease or at the termination of the lease of a periodic tenant, or at the annual anniversary of a lease for a term of more than one year (if lease so provides), no landlord may request or receive a percentage increase in rent which is greater than four percent (4%).

If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Rent Leveling Board Secretary, Rose Marie Tuosto at (973) 450-3323.
