$125 For a basement apartment paying now $1075.
You don't need to agree, and he can't even evict you.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

It's also possible that halachically there's a going rate on raises.

Legally as well. There actually is a lakewood rent board.

Doesn't apply if the house is less than 7 years old, apparently
The landlord is required to inform the tenant that it's exempt.

Also doesn't apply if the property expenses went up, iirc. Since taxes always go up in this town....

In any case, 3 bedroom apartments now go for $1,300-$1,500 depending on location. I don't think I ever saw the Masa umatan so short.

Ok. B"H got an appointment for tomorrow morning in South Brunswick!!
Seems they update the schedule regularly and you have to keep refreshing and checking each location.
I actually missed an appointment at same location earlier which opened up and was grabbed before I filled out my info.
I hope this helps anyone else in same situation, because otherwise only appointments showing are in March

I don't think there is currently an active rent board.

Also the allowed rent increases are cumulative for up to 4 years. Meaning if your landlord has not raised the rent for four years he can raise it 20%.

I'm not very familiar, but I know someone who dealt with them a few years ago.

Hi,
I got a ticket in Brick for "Careless Driving, Likely to endanger person or property" yesterday with a fine of $86. I looked it up and it seems like I will be getting 2 points for this if I just plead guilty.
FYI, I made a wide turn by a light and drifted into the other lane which cause a car to make a short stop with a cop right behind us.
My license is otherwise clean.

Any recommendations on how to fight this easily to avoid the points? Or just pay it and deal with it?

Thanks

For insurance purposes it makes a bigger difference.

a plea bargain, but you may need to be there for that even with a lawyer.

You can call a lawyer. I'm not sure who is recommended for Brick.

As I've written on the forums before, I've used Leib Klein, but it was a Lakewood case and he's a Lakewood public defender, so he has an advantage here.

Costs are usually about $500 for a standard case, plus whatever ticket they change it to. (I think they usually try to plea it to a non-moving violation ticket, so there are no points and no insurance increase.)

ETA: Leib Klein's number - 732-987-7040

There are standards, and then for a little more money, you can get something special. I would recommend for a DW to go to the next level, and here are three options:

Zeigelman's small classic caramel, $38 IIRC, available off Madison Avenue and Cary Street IIRC

Schucks Fine Pastries, small strawberry short cake or small blueberry custard cake, $50 IIRC, on Shonny Court

Mousse-filled heart or other fancy creations, $25-$85 range, The Choco Shoppe - across from Segal Square.


I can gladly PM you the phone numbers to any of these stores.

ETA: Picture of Choco Shoppe creations here, so you can get the feelings. It may be more for anniversary type.
