So you want to evict your tenant? Good luck! But you
say the tenant’s lease has expired? So what! Any landlord who has
paid attention to New Jersey law knows this. If you’re still incredulous,
take it from J. Leonard Hornstein, a retired judge from the
Hudson County Superior Court’s special civil part:
"Basically if a tenant pays the rent and does not violate any
of the rules or regulations or any conduct contravening the provisions
of the anti-eviction act, he’s got a lifetime tenancy," says Hornstein.
"Because even if there’s a written lease there’s a provision in
the statute the tenancy is automatically continued even though the
lease may have expired."
Hornstein and Harold E. Creacy, a senior staff attorney with
the Union County Legal Services Corp., discuss landlord/tenant rights
at the New Jersey State Bar Foundation on Tuesday, April 14, at 7
p.m. at the New Jersey Law Center in New Brunswick. Call 800-373-3529
for more information.
It takes quite a bit to evict a tenant who is up-to-date on the rent.
It’s not impossible to evict, but, both Hornstein and Creacy affirm,
it’s pretty close to being impossible. If the apartment is in a two
or three-family, owner-occupied house, a tenant can be evicted with
a 30-day notice. But if it’s a multifamily dwelling, an eviction has
to prove good cause outlined in the state law. "That has several
paragraphs indicating how a tenant can be evicted by violating a specific
provision of the statute aside from not paying the rent," says
Here they are:
or other tenants in the building.
"We get these once in a while," says Hornstein. "A tenant
would leave the sink or bathtub overflowing and water would leak down
to the next floor and cause damage. Sometimes the kids just bang up
the walls and cause damage to them. That’s a reason that’s used often."
after a written notice was issued to the tenant. "One of the
reasons for eviction on this ground is pets in the building,"
says Hornstein. "It’s usually a dog or a cat. I’ve never had a
case come up where the complaint was that there’s a bird in the apartment."
The challenge here is that any notice the landlord gives the tenants
has to have the correct language. "There were a lot of cases I
dismissed because the notice did not comply with the proper language,"
says Hornstein. In his court, landlords’ attorneys often lost cases
because their notices did not adhere to the correct legalese.
of the lease or refuses to pay an increase in the rent. The operative
here is unreasonably, which means "without justification,"
Related to that, if there’s been a "not unconscionable" increase
in rent and the tenant refuses to pay, the landlord stands a chance
to evict. However, what is "not unconscionable" is at the
judge’s discretion, says Hornstein. For him, a 15 to 20 percent rent
increase was satisfactory. "If the tenant is paying $1,000 a month,
you can’t raise it on 30 days’ notice to $1,500," he says. "If
he raised it to $1,200, no problem."
to stop using it for rental purposes. This can stand — but
the landlord needs to give 30 days’ notice. Back in the ’80s when
many owners were converting buildings to condominiums, Hornstein reports,
very few owners were able to win cases trying to evict tenants who
refused to leave.
and spent 10 years in active reserve in the United States Navy. He
got his law degree also from New York University (Class of 1954) and
practiced law with his father at their Jersey City firm, Hornstein
& Hornstein, for 21 years before being appointed for a Superior Court
judgeship by Brendan Byrne.
His first bench was in Hudson County Superior Court’s family court
division, where he sat for 11 years before joining the special civil
part. Now retired for six years, Hornstein alternates his time teaching
at the Institute for Continuing Legal Education and the Bayonne Board
of Education, where he makes teaching house calls to children who
are unable to attend school.
Creacy points out the misconceptions that landlords have about their
rights. It’s not just a matter of telling the tenant to get out when
they don’t pay the rent. To evict, the landlord needs to satisfy one
of the 18 causes of action to evict enumerated in the Anti-Eviction
"Generally most landlords don’t realize that there’s a series
of statutes that govern what the appropriate remedies are," says
Creacy. "Most landlords still think they retain the right to lock
the doors if they’re not paying. They do not realize that you have
to take a person to court and have them evicted for cause."
And if they successfully evict someone, they can’t take the tenant’s
property as remuneration for back rent. "Their recourse is to
file a civil lawsuit for the money that is owed," says Creacy.
"It’s a straight-forward suit that’s under contract law."
Even though it’s not hard for landlords to prevail in this situation,
many landlords will have trouble collecting the money owed.
Another contentious subject is the security deposit. "Tenants
think that they get their money as soon as they get out," says
Creacy. "The statutes say the landlord has 30 days to return the
deposit to the tenant." And if the landlords want to deduct something
from the deposit, they have to give the tenant a written itemized
list justifying the deductions when they hand over the balance.
Landlords also frequently assume that they can deduct if a tenant
doesn’t leave a place in tip-top shape. "When the tenant leaves
the place, the law requires that they leave the space `broom clean,’
not in a condition for it to be immediately re-let," says Creacy.
"You don’t have to paint the place or scrub the floors."
Creacy, 39, has an undergraduate degree from Morgan State University,
in Baltimore, and a law degree from Rutgers University Law School,
in Newark (Class of 1987). As senior attorney in the Union County
Legal Services Corporation’s housing and public benefits unit, Creacy
defends indigent tenants in court. "It’s a civil analog to the
public defenders," he says.
The Legal Services Corporation was established during the Nixon administration
as a private program, and gets state, federal, and other funding from
private sources to provide free legal representation. In New Jersey,
there are 14 legal services offices (in Mercer County it’s the Legal
Aid Society of Mercer at 198 West State Street in Trenton, call 609-695-6249).
"The need for this kind of representation for this class of people
is so overwhelming," says Creacy.

What happens when you mix a strategic planning guru
with a relocation specialist? One possible result: Century Management
Consultants, the husband and wife team that just took space at 32
The firm, 21 years in the making, moved from Ridgewood to be closer
to home, says Stanley Makadok, president. He and Neilia Makadok, the
vice president and relocation specialist of the company, live in Yardley
and have been married for nine years.
"We specialize in strategic planning, marketing, distribution,
and administrative systems and we also move companies," says Stanley
Makadok. "It’s almost a mind-split of conceptual stuff and detail."
Prior to starting Century, Makadok headed business planning for Coopers
& Lybrand’s New York City office and was vice president of planning
for Pepsi in Purchase, New York. He has an engineering degree from
the City College of New York (Class of 1962) and a master’s in management
science from Rutgers University.
Neilia has spent most of her career managing facilities. At Toys R
Us, she was director of office services, a title she also held at
CNA Insurance. She worked in the facilities of Loews Corporation,
a job which put her in charge of Manhattan’s famed Drake Hotel. She
has a BS from West Chester University in Pennsylvania and a masters
in psychology at Temple. "Every company is so totally different,"
she says. "There’s not much new in an office that you can show
At Century, she heads up the "detail" side of the operation.
"People can hire me to manage any part of their relocations,"
she says. "I can do scheduling, I can do budgeting. I’ve done
a lot of renovation work. I’ve done a lot of work in New York, which
is mostly old, old buildings. Administratively I’ve set up travel
What does it take to move a company? First, a love for a fast-paced
environments and the ability to take multitasking to the limit. The
distasteful aspects of the business include "severe time pressures,"
"I carry a ton of time pressure," says Makadok. "It’s
part of what makes it exciting. I come up very cool on the outside,
but on the inside I have contingency plans for every situation."
This also has an impact on Neilia’s figure. "I always lose a lot
of weight on my projects," she says. "When it gets close the
actual move-in, I lose about 10 pounds, because you’re always on the
run." Her job also affects her diet. "I drink a lot of water,
I try to have salads, and I have to `chocolate’ here and there to
keep me going."
Her latest move was a broadcasting company — but this project
took its biggest toll from Neilia’s sleep schedule: She averaged roughly
three hours of shuteye for the last week of the move. "But there’s
a real sense of euphoria when the president calls you into his office
and says, `I cannot believe you pulled this off,’" she says.
The benchmark of any job for Neilia is downtime. She knows the relocation
has been successful, she says, when an employee leaves the old space
on Friday and comes into the new space on Monday where all the equipment
is there, everything is working, and the only task at hand is unpacking
personal office accouterments.
This can only occur as an end-step in a well-defined process, Makadok
instructs. "You’re evaluating, then you’re planning, then you
have to do your documentation in terms of your budgeting, in terms
of the reasons you are leaving," she says. "And the execution
involves the players: the developers and the broker, the design professionals,
and then your engineers and your technical consultants , then your
contractor and other assorted professionals."
When moving day draws nearer, Makadok holds meetings with employees
to explain her meticulous exit plan. "We number every location,
and we color-code it, and we make a map," she says. "We give
them boxes. They pack their personal belongings. And the company has
set aside packing time. It’s almost invisible to the employee. There
is no downtime if you do it right."

The division between the editorial department and the
advertisers erodes every day and Bob Berkowitz is incensed by
this. The onetime White House correspondent, who changed his career
course from a high profile national TV news reporter to become more
like an information age Dr. Ruth, is traveling around the country
lecturing on the perils of allowing advertisers to influence what
is reported by the American media.
Berkowitz gives a talk at New Jersey CAMA, "Is There Sex after
Advertising?" on Tuesday, April 14, at 11:30 a.m. at Forsgate
Country Club in Jamesburg. Call 609-890-9207. "What I’ve observed
is that advertisers have gotten out of the advertising business to
some degrees and have gotten into the censorship line of work,"
he says. "I call it censorship by sponsorship."
Most of this style of censorship targets sexual-related material (which
he feels is hypocritical, given the fact that so many advertisers
try to sell their products using sexy ads). Berkowitz has a direct
interest in his challenge — he is about as outspoken in his own
way about sex as is Howard Stern. He has written two books,
"What Men Won’t Tell You But Women Need to Know," and "His
Secret Life: Male Sexual Fantasies," a compendium that includes
one of Berkowitz’s own reveries as well.
His website, http://www.bobberkowitz.com allows visitors to
submit their own sexual fantasies, and even provides a "fantasy
formulator" replete with pull-down blanks to help them concoct
their steamiest scenarios. He also likes getting E-mail; send him
your thoughts — firstname.lastname@example.org.
Berkowitz, who turns 48 this month, started his media career doing
talk radio during his junior year at the University of Denver (Class
of 1973). After similar radio shows in Denver and San Francisco, he
got a job in Washington as the national news editor for the Associated
Press radio network. In 1980 he became the White House correspondent
for the fledgling station CNN. But for most of the 1980s Berkowitz
worked for ABC News in New York City, following that with a stint
as men’s correspondent for the Today show.
But it wasn’t until 1992, when Berkowitz left a job on the Financial
News Network business show Focus, that he started to delve deep into
good old fashioned American prurience. He became host of a CNBC show,
"Real Personal," in 1992. Although the show was popular —
it was CNBC’s highest-rated show — it was pulled off the air in
1996 because of a lack of sponsorship.
This experience fueled Berkowitz’ campaign to expose the media’s double
standard. Why should a show with high ratings be blacklisted because
it has too much sex in it? "Thank God we still have a First Amendment
in this country," he snaps. "But if the marketplace is deciding
what’s okay to print or see on TV or hear on the radio it might as
well be the same as not having a First Amendment. It’s as if these
sponsors are saying to the public, `We know what’s good for you, we’re
smarter than you, we’re better than you.’ It’s the most condescending
A formative event transpired last year between Esquire and Chrysler,
a regular advertiser in the magazine. At Chrysler’s behest, Esquire
spiked a short story about a male college professor who was accused
by a male student of sexual harassment. "It had a gay theme to
it," says Berkowitz. "Who was in danger of being corrupted
by this story? I can’t imagine a child reading Esquire magazine. Again
the wonderful thing about a magazine is you can choose not to read
it, but unfortunately Esquire knuckled under."
Events like this could end up being disastrous for the entire media
industry. "Chrysler Corporation has put editors on notice —
if they feel they have a controversial article, Chrysler wants to
know about it in advance so it can decide if it wants to pull its
ads," says Berkowitz. "Let’s be clear about something: Chrysler
has the kind of bucks and clout it takes to influence the decision-making
of magazine editors. I’m not advocating that we pass laws forcing
Chrysler — or Joe’s Gas Station — to advertise, I’m just saying
that there are consequences for this and this isn’t the kind of America
that I want."
Berkowitz is not advocating making the American media into some adult
content free-for-all. For instance, he is "uncomfortable"
with the increasing usage of profanity on television and radio. "I
think that it leads to a coarsening of society," he says.
"I believe in self-control and I believe you have to use some
common sense when you’re in the media. But in general that should
not be a function of advertisers telling us what we should or shouldn’t
listen to. I heard the `s’ word on PBS a couple of times, I guess
that’s become acceptable. What’s offensive a generation ago is now
not offensive. And whether Bob Berkowitz or anybody else finds something
offensive, that shouldn’t be the criterion on for whether somebody

Holy Roller could be enough to send the executive ranks of an advertiser
reeling. "Advertisers fear one thing more than everything else:
letters," says Berkowitz. "It’s because they’re so out of
A corollary to this message is the dichotomy between the public’s
apparent indifference to the Clinton sex scandal and the extensive
coverage the scandal has been getting from the media and the government.
"Once again the media elite and the government have shown themselves
to be so out of touch with average Americans," he says. "I
remember when the Monica Lewinsky thing first broke, Sam Donaldson
was saying Clinton will be gone by the end of the week. These people
are out of touch with the average Americans. Americans are far less
And far less puritanical. "Variety reported in 1997 there were
600 million rentals of adult videos," says Berkowitz. That’s not
counting the volume of porn sites on the Internet either. For some

"Shadow Syndromes," by John J. Ratey M.D. and Catherine Johnson
Ph.D., shows how hidden psychological disorders can quietly influence
the way we work and affect our business as well as our personal lives
(Pantheon, 1997, $26). Even mild versions of an otherwise serious
disorder should be treated medically, they believe, if the condition
interferes with your capacity to reach full potential.
Ratey speaks at a conference entitled "Managing the Brain You’ve
Got: Revolutionary Brain Research & What It Tells Us about Learning
Abilities and Disabilities," sponsored by Newgrange on Friday,
April 17, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Marriott. The 20-year-old

disorder, anxiety, and addiction. Someone who worries fruitlessly
over the meaning of a remark made at work, or who continuously searches
for signs that something is wrong.
Almost any form of work, even including work we do not particularly
enjoy, can quiet the disruptive forces that precipitate symptoms of
mental distress, writes Ratey. "But work we love is more powerful
still. As always, there is a biological reason for this: for most
of us, work stimulates the cheer-seeking left side of the brain, taking
us out of the stewing morass that is the right. An impassioned commitment
to an activity, to any activity at all, pushes brain function in the
direction of health, sanity, and well-being. Work soothes the soul."
"In the world of work, knowing what we want lies at the heart
of the capacity to commit to a lifetime of discipline, effort, and
showing up on time. While living life one day at a time has saved
many an addict, when we can only live life one day at a time,
the future dissolves. Ultimately all of the shadow syndromes threaten
our capacity to wish for the rest of our lives."
"A person who is struggling internally has less energy to invest
outwardly. Biting fingernails can be a way of focusing down: when
an individual becomes absorbed in the act of biting his nails, his
brain feels, for those moments, calmer, more organized," writes
"All too often the need to focus down can shanghai a day. Take
the case of compulsive desk-cleaning. The conviction that we cannot
work in the midst of chaos may well reflect a chaos within.
And while it is true that a frenzied bout of desk-cleaning can soothe
the soul, it can also get in the way."
"Minor miracles are happening for people who thought their only
problem was the inevitable pain life brings to us all," writes
Ratey. "When they begin to look at their biologies — as well
as their childhoods — they have begun to find an answer at last.
Our job is to care for our brains as well as our souls."
Don’t let the loudest person take over your discussion.
Don’t be the best kept secret in town. Learn how to develop leadership
in your volunteer group. These are among the topics that dedicated
do-gooders can learn in a workshop that is the brainchild of Marge
Smith, former executive director of the YWCA. She and her crew
of 30 volunteers hope that this evening workshop will sprout into
a full-fledged year-round consortium of organizations that join forces
to stage volunteer training and other joint ventures.
"Community Works" has been scheduled for Thursday, April 16,
5:15 to 9:15 p.m., at the Woodrow Wilson School. Preregister for two
of the eight workshops, and the $15 fee includes a box supper. The
workshop is open to all. Pick up an application form at a public library
or call 609-924-8652. A roster will be distributed that night.
Michael Nabors (consultant to Princeton’s civil rights commission)
and Karen Woodbridge (in the Princeton University community
affairs department) join Smith in introductory remarks, followed by
Nancy Kieling of the Princeton Area Community Foundation will
lead a grant workshop along with Tom Borden of the Borden Foundation,
Lincoln Kerney of the Kerney Foundation, and Barbara Rambo
"Don’t Be the Best-Kept Secret in Town" will be taught by
Pam Hersh, Princeton University community affairs, and Francis
Ianacone, a public relations professional who does volunteer PR
for the YWCA. Jane Silverman, executive director for the international
organization of Junior League, will lead a workshop on long range
John Lasley, a trainer, and Lilia Cruickshank, active
in the vestry at Trinity Church, will teach how to develop leadership
in a corps of volunteers. "Put the Fun in Fundraising" is
the subject for planners of some of the most successful galas and
campaigns in town — Florence Kahn, Joann Carchman,
and Suzanne Goldensen.
Smith will teach "Positive Benefits of Conflict," involving
listening skills, setting boundaries, and devising processes to allow
everyone to be heard, "so the loudest person doesn’t take over,"
For good decision making, to keep opposing sides from restating their
positions over and over, use a process called "force field analysis,"
says Smith. Encourage both sides to think of all the positive things
about the positives, and then have the group use its "think power"
to think of all the negatives. "That changes the group dynamic
of how the decision is reached."
For example, some on the Princeton YWCA board wanted to purchase Bramwell
House (the building now used for community classes) because the YWCA
was always short of space. "Others felt we shouldn’t because we
didn’t have the money," says Smith. With both sides buying into
both positive and negative arguments, the nay-sayers found themselves
saying encouraging things and the would-be buyers found themselves
staring at the hard financial realities. Together both sides acknowledged
the negative but moved forward and allowed the project to succeed.
They agreed to make the purchase but figured out strategies to overcome
"Otherwise," says Smith, "everybody is for one way or
the other and you lose half your board."
As the government deregulates the telecommunications,
healthcare, and utilities industries, opportunities for businesses
to save money are emerging at an unprecedented clip. But because there
are so many ways to save, most of the savings are going unnoticed
by business owners. "When companies now select their insurance,
sometimes they don’t even know what they’re buying," says Grace
Polhemus, president of Technology New Jersey, the 212 Carnegie
Center-based nonprofit. "They don’t find out until someone gets
sick that it’s not covered and the same holds true for telecommunications,
which is really very exciting right now because of the open market."
To help create a "roadmap" of choices for the deregulated
telecommunications, healthcare, and utilities industries, Technology
New Jersey is starting a free clearinghouse at its website, technologynj.org,
which lists three different "choice exchanges" comparing services,
products, and prices. This, says Polhemus, will enable easy "apples-to-apples"
comparisons. "This is especially helpful when providers bundle
services and products in a variety of packages."
"Currently businesses have a choice. Technology New Jersey’s goal
is to really educate businesses in terms of what this means to their
bottom line. We’ll have a roadmap type of chart that show what they’re
There will also be workshops and taskforces educating businesses about
those three domains. For more information, call 609-419-4444. Or visit

For working women of yore, finding the right clothes
for work simply meant popping open a fashion glossy and picking out
an outfit. Today, women need to worry about appropriateness, expectations,
and the tailoring color to their skin hues. Many times that outfit
in Cosmo might clash with the atmosphere in the office.
In some cases, women might do well to hire an image consultant like
Renata Murray. "There are different varieties of my species
out there," says Murray. "I work mostly with women and what
I help them do is create the look that they need and that they are
Murray is one of the speakers at Mercer County College’s Secretaries
Day program on Thursday, April 16, at 9 a.m. at the Marriott. The
other speakers are Melva Harris of Harris Development Consultants,
who speaks about personal growth, and P.J. Dempsey of Morgan
Mercedes Human Resources Group, who speaks about valuable employees.
Call 609-586-9446 for more information.
"Years ago, we used to see a lot of things in magazines that said
`dress for success’ and there were certain looks that were dictated
and we really don’t have that much anymore," says Murray. "What
women need to do is look at what looks good on them. And number two,
what is appropriate for their work situation. Dressing for success
in this day and age really means looking appropriate for whatever
situation they are in."
Murray compares a woman’s total work image to a puzzle. "The pieces
to that puzzle are knowing the shades of colors that look good on
someone, the styles of clothing that are right for a particular body,
and then the flavor of the personality needs to come out also."
Color is a science unto itself. First, the colors need to flatter
their subject. Second, the psychology of colors needs some understanding.
"Some colors make people look softer and more approachable (neutral
shades and earthy colors, browns, taupes, and beige) while other colors
(black, white, navy, and red) make people look more powerful."
Murray, 45, has been doing image consulting for 13 years. By trade
she is a registered nurse. She got her first nursing degree in Germany,
and got her RN from the University of Medicine and Dentistry when
she came to this country in 1976.
