How long does a tenant have to remove property after breaking lease in NJ?
In most states, when a tenant has been lawfully evicted, the landlord has the right to remove the personal belongings of the former tenant from the rental property. Each state, however, has laws regarding what the landlord must do with that property after removing it. Some states require the landlord to keep belongings in storage for 30 days prior to disposing it - in this case the landlord has the right to collect the storage fees from the tenant before releasing the belongings - while other states, such as Florida, permit the landlord to dispose of the belongings as the landlord sees fit. In South Carolina, the landlord has to remove all property and place it on the curbside, where the tenant has 48 hours to retrieve them or they will be disposed of.

Do you have to hire a lawyer if you're trying to obtain a cheap divorce?
In the process of getting a dirove, it is NOT necessary to hire a lawyer but is highly recommended. The easiest way to get a divorce and settle issues with your spouse is to get together, talk everything out, and divide all belongings without the need of a lawyer present. You do not have to have a lawyer for a divorce, but if you suspect it could get ugly, get a lawyer. It is cheaper than losing everything to your ex-spouse. No divorce is cheap.

How long must a landlord hold a renters personal property after they move out?
Every state is different about this: normally, once the tenant has moved out of the property, anything left behind becomes the property of landlord. If tenant was evicted and was forced to move out by the Sheriff's office/Constable, then, there are rules regarding the belongings left behind by the tenant. In South Carolina, for example, you must move all of the tenant's belongings onto the curb near the street, where the tenant would have easy access to remove the belongings once the landlord has taken possession. In some states, the landlord may be required to store the belongings, generally for up to 30 days, or the landlord may automatically be entitled to the belongings.
