Rent Control


Working with the Warren County Board of Realtors®, New Jersey Realtors® raised concerns to an ordinance that would have created a system of rent control in Phillipsburg. New Jersey Realtors® raised concerns that rent control would make it more difficult for owners to keep their properties in good condition and actually lead to a lack of quality rental housing. The ordinance, while passed by the Council by one vote, was vetoed by the town’s Mayor, ensuring it would not take effect.
