Can real estate agents continue to show properties in person? Can my landlord show my apartment to potential renters?

Last Updated: 06/01/2020

All New Jerseyans should stay home as much as possible to save lives and stop the spread of COVID-19.

Real estate agents are allowed to operate and show houses to prospective buyers on a 1-on-1 basis, or to immediate families, but the current prohibition on open houses continues.

Renters seeking new housing or whose lease may be expiring should discuss with their landlords or realtors the best way to adhere to Executive Order No. 107 and maintain proper social distancing practices.

To report landlords in violation of these protocols, residents can contact the New Jersey Bureau of Housing Inspectionat (609) 633-6241. To report a possible violation of Executive Order No. 107, residents can use this online form.
