McKnight, Chiaravalloti, Holley, Chaparro, Downey, Mosquera, Moriarty & Lopez Bills Focused on Senior Citizen Housing Concerns Clears Committee

Designed to protect senior citizen tenants in New Jersey, three bills sponsored by Assembly Democrats Angela McKnight, Nicholas Chiaravalloti, Jamel Holley, Annette Chaparro, Joann Downey, Gabriela Mosquera, Paul Moriarty and Yvonne Lopez that focus on security as well as tenant-landlord relationship protection were approved by the Assembly Housing and Community Development Committee on Monday.

"Simply put, everyone deserves to feel safe in their homes," said McKnight (D-Hudson). "Senior citizens are often seen as easy targets by criminals. They can also be easy targets for landlord fraud. These bills help to protect seniors on all fronts - by increasing protection in terms of safety as well as the rights they have as tenants, regardless of age."
