Yes — there is a limit. In New Jersey, there are landlord-tenant laws that state that a landlord is permitted to charge a tenant the equivalent of one and one-half months’ rent for the security deposit. New Jersey laws also state that any additional security deposit — a deposit collected on an annual basis — may not be more than 10% of the current security deposit.
New Jersey landlord-tenant laws state that the landlord is required to return the tenant’s security deposit within 30 days after the tenant has vacated the rental property and returned the keys to the landlord.

Some of the defects commonly found in construction involve water issues such as mold, dry rot, and poor drainage. Problems with electrical systems are also fairly common, including those involving heating systems. Construction defects also often pertain to structural failure and cracking of the floor, walls, roof, and foundation.
If you are selling your home in New Jersey, you are legally required to disclose all the “material defects” that you are aware of. “Material defects” generally follows the definition provided by the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors, which is “a specific issue with a system or component of a residential property that may have a significant, adverse impact on the value of the property, or that poses an unreasonable risk to people.” Home inspectors play a valuable role in uncovering any defects and alerting potential buyers, but as the homeowner, you should disclose anything that would make a reasonable buyer have second thoughts about buying the house. These defects may also be included in the contract of sale.
