Window Guard Legislation Signed Into Law

Governor Jon Corzine signed into law on Monday new window guard legislation that took effect immediately. This law extends the previous window guard law to condominiums and cooperatives. If you have prepared any leases since Monday, July 31, 2006 for a condominium or cooperative unit that is not a seasonal rental unit, you must notify the tenants that they have the right to request windows guards if a child or children age 10 or under will reside in the unit or are present for a substantial amount of time.

The new window guard law allows occupants of multiple dwelling units, condominiums and cooperatives to request that window guards be installed in any units where a child or children age 10 or under resides or are present for a substantial amount of time.  For more information on the law’s provisions, please read the bill text at http://www.njleg.state.nj.us/2006/Bills/S 0500/458_R1.PDF.
