N.J. Admin. Code § 5:24-1.12 - Standards of fair dealing

(a) Any discount or reduction in sales price offered to a tenant in occupancy in order to induce such tenant to agree to purchase his unit during the exclusive right to purchase period shall be available, without any change that would have the effect of raising the price to such tenant, for the entire exclusive right to purchase period. Any subsequent discount or reduction in sales price, offered at any time during the exclusive right to purchase period, must be continued through the end of that period.
(b) No owner of a building or of a unit or of a proprietary lease to a unit, or person acting on behalf of or with the consent of such owner, shall engage in any course of conduct which unreasonably disturbs any tenant in the lawful use and occupancy of any unit. The conduct hereby prohibited shall include, but not be limited to, willful interruption or discontinuance of services or failure to correct violations of applicable housing, health and safety codes and the issuance of false or otherwise illegal notices.
(c) No owner of a building or of a unit or of a proprietary lease to a unit shall impose an unreasonable rent increase on a tenant lawfully occupying any unit. An increase shall be presumed to be unreasonable if it is in excess of the increase that would be allowed under any municipal rent control ordinance applicable to the building immediately prior to conversion or if it reflects increased costs attributable directly or indirectly to the conversion which do not add services or amenities not previously provided. For the purposes of (c) of this section, repairs required by applicable codes shall not be deemed to be amenities.
