they wanted cash only.  My only reservation about the nj consumer affairs division is that if their investigation is inconclusive (i am not sure how the NJ investigator will be able to conclusively determine the leak is from the same exact location that they supposedly fixed) that might be used against me in a subsequent small claims court case?
Do you have documentation for the cash payment? Was sales tax collected? Does the business officially accept credit cards (if they do and refuse to take them from you, I think that might be a violation).

I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

yes I have a receipt I paid in cash.  They do not accept cc. 

who is in violation when no sales tax is collected? the customer paying, the business receiving  or both?

Don't you think filing a claim in SC and a complaint with the NJ consumer fraud division will make him less likely to repeat this action rather than just settling with him?
No.
Because when was the last time that you needed a mechanic on the road and checked if there were ant SC judgements or NJCF complaints against them. If he's dishonest, he's dishonest.

I'm actually quite curious about this. 
1)Assuming landlord does not have items up to code (fire proof boiler doors, self grounding outlets etc) and something goes wrong, will the landlord be held more accountable than a reg apt? (If tenant claims that they thought the apt was legal and passed inspection upon completion of construction)
2) Can landlord include a rider in lease in case of order to vacate the lease is broken?
3) Any sort of rider that can be added to prevent tenant from calling the city?

who is generally  in violation when no sales tax is collected, the buyer , seller or both?

I am guessing that to a certain extent both, though if I am not mistaken buyer is supposed to pay uncollected sales taxes (such as purchases from out of state sellers who are not required to collect sales taxes in your state due to no physical presence) on their state tax return. So I would think that the seller is the one with a bigger problem in this case (especially since buyer can always claim that the price paid was inclusive of the sales tax).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

can a lease even be upheld in a illegal apt?
