What should I put in Agreement of Money for keys by ownernj on June 15, 2020 @10:55

I already have had Judgement for possession from L/T court in February, 2020. Unfortunately, on the day schedule for lockout, NJ governor stopped it, and now who knows when we can proceed.

Tenant (professional one I have to say) has not paid a penny since October, 2019, now he takes advantage of the pandemic and asking me to give him a month worth money for getting out. It seems that I have no choice but to accept if I wanted to get my property back earlier. I am preparing for an agreement to sign.

What should I say in the agreement?

What you should say, depends on what you are looking for from the tenant. Are you just wanting possession back ONLY, or does the T need to leave NO PERSONAL POSSESSIONS in the place, leave NO damages, and leave the place relatively clean ? You will need to set a time and date that you can meet the T at the rental, and go thru the entire place. Then, if you are satisfied with what he left you, he needs to hand you the keys, BEFORE you give him ANY money.

Whatever agreement you write up, what makes you think the T will abide by it? Remember, you signed another agreement some time ago (the lease), and you see how that's working out for you.
