Under the Division’s Multiple Dwelling Reporting Rules, N.J.A.C. 13:10-1:1 to -2.6, the Division requires landlords to collect and record information about applicants for apartment rentals and tenants in apartment complexes throughout New Jersey. The Multiple Dwelling Reporting Rule requires landlords to provide a summary of this information to the Division and to retain the information on this form. The information is used to prevent and eliminate discrimination in housing. Your cooperation in filing out this form will assist the Division in enforcing the Law Against Discrimination.
