Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
The eviction notice should not be of any legal significance now.......if the co-op didn't follow through with the eviction, then that notice should be irrelevant. Thus, any eviction proceedings would have to start over in order to be legally effective.
The law in NJ generally requires a 30 day notice to comply or quit.....so if you got a notice, but the co-op never proceeded with anything and allowed you to stay, then the court should find that the co-op forgave the initial claim and allowed you to remain. I don't see anything that would allow the 5 year old notice to be a precedent for any current proceeding. Here's a link to the laws regarding this matter: http://www.state.nj.us/dca/divisions/codes/publications/pdf_lti/evic_law.pdf
No problem. Thanks for the question and please let me know if you need anything further.
