for a Smoke Detector Compliance Certification.
AUTOMOBILES, TRUCKS, MOTORCYCLES AND MOPEDS:
The Park will enforce the following measures to ensure the
utmost safety of all individuals and residents of Monmouth
Mobile Home Park, many of which are promulgated to protect
the children in the Park.
The streets of Monmouth Mobile Home Park are to be used
exclusively as thoroughfares. All motor vehicles must be
in operating condition, properly registered, insured and
muffled. They are to be operated by licensed drivers only.
There is to be no more than one person on a moped at any
time. Special arrangements and permission from the Park are
required for the parking of three or more cars within the
Park. All vehicles must be faced in the proper direction.
Minor Repairs of vehicles are permitted, but said vehicles
cannot be kept on blocks. Other than standard size pick-up
trucks and standard size vans, there will be no trucks or
vans allowed within the limits of the Park.
The speed limit is 15 miles per hour as per agreement with
the Department of Transportation which will be enforced by
the local police authorities under New Jersey Statutes Annotated
Title 39. Any restrictions or signs respecting traffic conditions
are made a part of these Rules and Regulations.
The above provisions regarding trucks and other oversized
vehicles must be strictly enforced due to the following:
(a) The narrowness of the streets within the Park;
(b) The lack of off-street parking; and
(c) The poor visibility that would result from the parking
of trucks and other oversized vehicles.
All recreation equipment, including but not limited to boats,
campers and trailers, must be registered with the Park.
Landlord has worked in conjunction with the Tenant’s
Association and amended the Rules and Regulations pursuant
to discussions held on June 15, 1994. Accordingly, tenants
are now permitted to store one (1) boat on their lot, provided
said boat is not more than fourteen feet (14’) in length.
This includes the storage of a trailer consistent with the
size of the boat. The storage of gasoline outboard motors,
on a boat, is strictly prohibited. Tenants will be responsible
for repairing any indentations and/or damage to any lawn
area caused by the parking of a boat on their lot. This change
in the Park Rules and Regulations reflected consideration
for the need of additional parking for recreational equipment,
the lack of off-street parking and the limited size of the
lots within the Park.
All other recreation equipment must be registered and parked
only in designated areas.
When drying laundry, it may be hung daily and only during
daylight hours. Clothes must be removed from lines as soon
as dry. "Umbrella" lines may be used only in the
rear of the space and behind the mobile home where possible. "Umbrella" lines
must be closed when not in use.
Tenant is responsible for proper use of water lines and
waste pipes and should not tamper with electrical lines or
poles. All said lines and pipes below the ground level will
be the responsibility of the Landlord and anything above
the ground level will be the responsibility of the Tenant.
Tenant shall be responsible to pay for the reasonable costs
of repairs occasioned by damage caused by Tenant's actions
on any said lines or pipes, above or below the ground level.
Tenant shall keep the water and sewer lines on their space
free and clear from all plantings and debris to allow access
to said lines by Landlord. Any and all plantings and debris
which must be removed shall be removed by Landlord at the
expense of Tenant.
LOT MAINTENANCE AND IMPROVEMENT:
Standard yard and patio furniture and approved storage shed(s)
are the only items permitted outside mobile homes.
All tenants must have skirting on their homes. All tenants
must maintain existing skirting so that, all times, it is
secure, neat and free from dirt, damage, or defect. New skirting
or skirting being completely replaced shall be pre-finished
aluminum or vinyl (one color) installed vertically with a
two-tract system with vent panels. The color must be harmonious
with the color of the home. Skirting shall not be removed
from the home except for purposes of repair and inspection
of the home. Skirting must be factory designed for mobile
homes only, unless otherwise approved by landlord.
Spaces must be kept clean and orderly at all times. No storage
of any kind, including the storage of water hoses, will be
permitted under any mobile home. The Landlord's concern is
that of preventing breeding conditions for rodents and insects
and minimizing any risks and hazards of fire.
Grass is to be cut regularly by Tenant. Plantings left by
a preceding Tenant shall become part of this Park and shall
not be removed or damaged.
All fences and plantings must be approved by Landlord. The
Landlord will not permit a stockade fence, but will consider
split rail, picket and rubberized chain-link fences. The
maximum height of any fence will not exceed four (4) feet.
All fences must have at least fifty (50) percent visibility.
Because the streets must be plowed in the winter months,
no fence can be closer than four (4) feet from the curb line.
If a sidewalk exists, no fence can be closer than one (1)
foot from the sidewalk. All fences must be properly maintained
or they may be subject to removal.
Leaves are to be raked and disposed of in the designated
area(s) of the Park pursuant to the annual notice sent to
all Tenants by the Park.
As soon as possible after any snowfall, Tenants are responsible
for the removal of ice and snow from their sidewalks and
in and around all automobiles without discarding snow onto
No sign may be displayed by the Tenant on the lot or on
the Tenant's mobile home other than Tenant's name, lot number
and seasonal decorations, except that one "for sale" sign
may appear on Tenant's mobile home unit not to exceed 11" x
All water lines must be protected to prevent freezing prior
to October 15. A service charge can be made for each visit
to thaw out pipes, repair clogged sewers, damage to water
connections or electrical service where such service call
is necessitated by the fault of the Tenant. Tenant shall
not put any insoluble materials in toilets or sewer lines.
CONSTRUCTION OF SHEDS, ADDITIONS AND DECKS:
No additions or construction of any kind may be made to
any mobile home or to the site, which shall include, but
not be limited to, doors, windows, decks, sheds, and fences,
unless Tenant obtains the necessary permits and/or approvals
from the Township of South Brunswick, and the Tenant obtains
permission from the Park for same.
SECURING/ANCHORING OF MOBILE HOMES:
In order to provide for the safety of all park residents,
all mobile homes must be properly anchored and/or secured.
Any questions as to the anchoring and/or securing of your
mobile home and the permit process for same, should be directed
to the Park Office.
Tenant agrees to pay rent to Monmouth Mobile Home Park,
payable in monthly installments and on the first day of each
month. In addition to rent, Tenant agrees to pay any charges
or surcharges allowed or allowable under any regulation,
ordinance or statute promulgated or enacted by any body having
jurisdiction over regulating or setting of rents in the Township
of South Brunswick.
Tenant will pay the rent monthly as aforesaid, as the same
shall fall due. Any monthly rental payment after the 5th
of the month shall be accompanied by a late charge of 5%
of the amount then due.

the Rules & Regulations including but not limited to
rent, late charges and any attorney's fees incurred by the
landlord as part of any summary dispossess proceeding or
otherwise incurred to enforce the law and/or the Rules & Regulations,
shall be deemed "additional rent" for purposes
of any landlord-tenant proceeding. All such charges due to
the landlord from the tenant must be paid as a condition
precedent to have any summary dispossess action based upon
any non-payment of rent dismissed.
In addition, if the tenant is obligated to pay landlord
on account of any financing obligation related to the mobile
home acquisition each such monthly payment shall also be
considered "additional rent" for purposes of any
summary dispossess proceeding.
ENTRANCE TO THE PARK:
All tenants entering the Park shall pay $53.00 for a Credit
Report, $15.00 for a Mail Box Deposit, and a $650.00 Park
Entrance Fee. A non-refundable fee of $250.00 shall accompany
each credit application which will be applied to the Park
Entrance Fee if the tenant is accepted.
The Park Entrance Fee is not a donation, gratuity, bonus
or gift, but rather is specifically related to and identifiable
with the actual costs of processing new residents into their
mobile homes. The actual costs are comprised of the following:
Office staff and clerical support for the preparation of
the application packages, working with the bank obtaining
appraisals, verifying credit applications, preparation of
contracts, interacting with the owners and prospective buyers,

with the Landlord and all mobile homes shall be occupied
by the owner or owners of said home. The owner or owners
of any mobile home shall not sublet his or her mobile home,
assign any rights as to his or her mobile home and/or the
agreement to pay monthly rent or any other rights as to his
or her mobile home, or in any way permit individuals not
registered and approved by the Landlord to reside in his
or her mobile home.

the Landlord has the right of re-entry on to the premises,
to evict Tenant, and agrees that Landlord has the right to
commence any and all legal proceedings to carry out same.
SALE AND/OR REMOVAL OF MOBILE HOMES:
Landlord shall not deny Tenant the right to sell Tenant's
mobile home within Landlord's mobile home park or require
Tenant to remove the mobile home from Landlord's mobile home
park solely on the basis of the sale thereof. Tenant must
notify Landlord of Tenant's desire to sell his or her mobile
home unit. Landlord reserves the right to approve the purchaser
as a Tenant of Landlord, but such approval shall not be unreasonably
withheld. If Tenant is in arrears on his or her rental payments
or any other charges or if the demised premises are not adequately
maintained by Tenant or if Tenant's mobile home unit does
not comply with Landlord's rules and regulations on the date
of Tenant's proposed sale of Tenant's mobile home to a new
Tenant, no final approval will be granted by Landlord until
the defect or defects is or are cured.
Tenant shall have the right upon 90 days written notice
to Landlord to remove his or her mobile home from the leased
space and surrender possession of the leased space with a
pro-rata reduction in the rent apportioned as the date of
termination or removal, whichever is later. No mobile home
unit may be moved out of the Park while the Tenant is in
arrears on any charges as set forth herein.
INSPECTION OF SITE:
Tenant agrees that he or she has inspected the site in which
he or she is to occupy and has found same in good repair,
sanitary condition, and acceptable for his or her use. Monmouth
Mobile Home Park makes no representation as to the conditions
of the site which Tenant has inspected.
RIGHT OF ENTRY:
Landlord reserves the right to enter upon the Tenant's mobile
home site for the purpose of inspecting or repairing same.
Landlord reserves the right of entry upon the mobile home
unit and site without notice in case of an emergency.
Landlord shall not be liable for any debts, liability, or
damage claims for injury to persons, including Tenants or
their guests, or for property damage from any cause due to
any acts or omissions by the Tenant or the Tenant's agents,
employees, guests, licensees or invitees. Tenant hereby covenants
and agrees to indemnify Landlord and save him harmless from
all costs and expenses including attorney's fees, liability,
loss or other claims or obligations because of or arising
out of such injuries, damages or losses.
In the event of the destruction of Tenant's mobile home
unit by fire, explosion, the elements or otherwise or such
partial destruction thereof as to render the Tenant's mobile
home unit wholly untenantable or unfit for occupancy, or
should the Tenant's mobile home unit be so badly injured
that the same cannot be repaired within 90 days from the
happening of such injury, then and in such case the Tenant
shall promptly remove his or her mobile home unit or the
remains thereof, and all other property from the demised
premises and shall surrender said premises and all the Tenant's
interest therein to the Landlord, and shall pay rent to the
time of such surrender, in which event the Landlord may re-enter
and repossess the premises. Should the Tenant's mobile home
unit be rendered untenantable and unfit for occupancy, but
yet be repairable within 90 days from the happening of said
injury, the Tenant shall repair the same with reasonable
speed, and the rent shall accrue while repairs are being
made. Should Tenant's mobile home unit be so slightly injured
as not to be rendered untenantable and unfit for occupancy,
then the Tenant agrees to repair the same with reasonable
promptness and the rent shall accrue while repairs are being
made. The Tenant shall immediately notify the Landlord in
case of fire or other damage to the Tenant's mobile home
