6:6-4. Consent Judgments for Possession and Stipulations of Settlement
Notwithstanding any consent by a tenant, no warrant of removal may be issued or executed unless in compliance with all provisions of law.
- (a) Entry by the Court. A stipulation of settlement or an agreement that provides for entry of a judgment for possession must be written, signed by the parties, and presented to a judge for approval on the day of trial or as the judge otherwise directs, but if it requires the tenant to both pay rent and vacate the premises, the judge shall review it in open court. It must also be accompanied by the affidavit of the landlord and the certification of the landlord's attorney required by R. 6:6-3(b).
- (b) Entry by the Clerk. When the tenant is represented by an attorney and the attorney has signed the agreement, the clerk may enter judgment for possession upon receipt of the signed consent of the parties and the affidavit of the landlord and the certification of the landlord's attorney specified in R. 6:6-3(b).
