New Jersey Roommate Agreement

The New Jersey Roommate Agreement is a template used for laying ground rules between roommates living within the same rented property. As is commonly the case, roommates form unwritten or unspoken rules or assumptions, such as “my roommate will clean their dishes after using them.” These expectations, more often than not, go unfulfilled. Sitting down with the roommates and going through the template piece by piece, adding in or removing rules where necessary, allows roommates to vent their preferences and establish accepted protocols to prevent conflict during their time living together.
