Update on Reissuance of Expired Warrants of Removal
SUPREME COURT OF NEW JERSEY
IT IS ORDERED, pursuant to N.J. Const., Art. VI, sec. 2, par. 3, that
effective immediately, the provisions of Rule 6:7-l(d) (“Warrant of Removal;
Issuance, Execution”) of the Rules Governing the Courts of the State of New
Jersey, and the provisions of any other applicable rules, are relaxed so as to permit
the one-time reissuance of any expired warrant of removal upon the letter request
of a landlord made on notice to the tenant( s) without the requirement of a motion
or a filing fee. Those warrants of removal expired because they could not be
executed within 30 days of issuance during the moratorium on residential evictions
imposed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Any subsequent requests for reissuance
shall require a motion and the requisite filing fee.
The provisions of this order shall remain in effect until December 31, 2021
unless specifically extended by Court Order.
For the Court,
Dated: September 9, 2021
