TYPES OF NEW JERSEY WARRANTY LAWSUITS

WHAT IS A NEW JERSEY BREACH OF WARRANTY UNDER NEW JERSEY WARRANTY LAW?
New Jersey breach of warranty lawsuits involve New Jersey cars, New Jersey trucks, New Jersey SUVs, New Jersey recreational vehicles, New Jersey homes, New Jersey apartments or other New Jersey products, parts or labor that were sold with a New Jersey warranty. Usually, the case is one where a New Jersey business makes repeated repairs to your New Jersey cars, New Jersey trucks, New Jersey SUVs, New Jersey recreational vehicles, New Jersey boats, New Jersey homes or other New Jersey products under the New Jersey warranty for the same problem but couldn’t fix it.

WHAT ARE SOME COMMON TYPES OF NEW JERSEY BREACH OF WARRANTY LAWSUITS?
There are many varieties of breach of warranty lawsuits. The following are perhaps the most common types of breach of warranty lawsuits:
1. New Jersey Express warranty.
2. New Jersey Implied warranty of merchantability.
3. New Jersey Implied warranty of fitness for a particular purpose.
4. New Jersey Implied warranty of good title.
5. New Jersey Implied warranty of good workmanship.
6. New Jersey Implied warranty of habitability.
Whereas a New Jersey breach of contract claim normally requires the existence of a New Jersey contract between the New Jersey breach of contract lawsuit plaintiff and the New Jersey breach of contract defendant, a New Jersey warranty claim often does not.

TO PROVE A NEW JERSEY BREACH OF WARRANTY, MUST I ALWAYS PROVE THAT A DEFECT OR PROBLEM EXISTS OR THAT THE NEW JERSEY BREACH OF WARRANTY WAS OF WARRANTY DEFENDANT COMMITTED NEGLIGENCE?
A common misconception about New Jersey warranty lawsuits is that they require proof of the existence of a defect or negligence. Normally, in New Jersey breach of warranty lawsuits, proof of
a defect or negligence is unnecessary—failure of performance of New Jersey cars, New Jersey trucks, New Jersey SUVs, New Jersey recreational vehicles, New Jersey homes, New Jersey apartments or other New Jersey products, parts or labor in the absence of secondary causes is normally sufficient to prove a New Jersey breach of warranty.

WHAT IS A NEW JERSEY BREACH OF EXPRESS WARRANTY
A New Jersey breach of warranty lawsuit may arise: (1) Under New Jersey judicially made law, called New Jersey common law, such as where a New Jersey express warranty is issued for services; or (2) under the New Jersey Uniform Commercial Code, which provides for New Jersey express warranties regarding the quality of New Jersey cars, New Jersey trucks, New Jersey SUVs, New Jersey recreational vehicles or other New Jersey products or relative to checks or other negotiable instruments; or (3) under some New Jersey or Federal law other than the New Jersey Uniform Commercial Code, such as under the New Jersey New Home Warranty and Builders’ Registration Act.

The basic elements of a New Jersey breach of express warranty are:
(1) The New Jersey breach of warranty defendant was the recipient of or beneficiary under a New Jersey express oral or written warranty, including any affirmation of fact or promise made by the New Jersey breach of warranty defendant related to New Jersey cars, New Jersey trucks, New Jersey SUVs, New Jersey recreational vehicles or other New Jersey products or services, which became part of the basis of the bargain that New Jersey cars, New Jersey trucks, New Jersey SUVs, New Jersey recreational vehicles or other New Jersey products would conform to the affirmation or promise.
(2) New Jersey cars, New Jersey trucks, New Jersey SUVs, New Jersey recreational vehicles or other New Jersey products or services did not conform to the warranty and/or the New Jersey breach of warranty defendant experienced problems with New Jersey cars, New Jersey trucks, New Jersey SUVs, New Jersey recreational vehicles or other New Jersey products or services and/or New Jersey cars, New Jersey trucks, New Jersey SUVs, New Jersey recreational vehicles or other New Jersey products did
not perform as promised.
(3) In certain New Jersey breach of warranty lawsuits, the New Jersey breach of warranty was material rather than one for trivial nonconformities/problems.
(4) In certain New Jersey breach of warranty lawsuits, the New Jersey breach of warranty plaintiff gave the New Jersey breach of warranty defendant an opportunity to cure the nonconformities/problems but the New Jersey breach of warranty defendant failed to cure those nonconformities/problems.
(5) In certain New Jersey breach of warranty lawsuits, in a reasonable time after discovering the nonconformities/problems, the New Jersey breach of warranty plaintiff provided notice to the New Jersey breach of warranty defendant of the existence of those nonconformities/problems.
(6) In certain product warranty cases, such as where the New Jersey breach of warranty defendant alleges secondary causes, the New Jersey breach of warranty plaintiff did not continue to make deliberate and unreasonable use of the product after becoming aware of the nonconformity/problem or the New Jersey breach of warranty plaintiff did not cause the problem or nonconformity by
abusing, misusing or modifying the product.
(7) The New Jersey breach of warranty plaintiff suffered damages from the New Jersey breach of warranty.

NEW JERSEY BREACH OF EXPRESS WARRANTYCLAIMS BROUGHT UNDER NEW JERSEY NEW HOME WARRANTIES AND UNDER THE NEW JERSEY NEW HOME WARRANTY AND BUILDER’S REGISTRATION ACT
One specific type of New Jersey breach of express warranty case is a New Jersey breach of express warranty case brought under the New Jersey New Home Warranty and Builders' Registration Act, which establishes a program requiring that newly constructed New Jersey homes conform with certain construction and quality standards and provides New Jersey new home buyers with insurance-backed warranty protection in the event such standards are not met. In addition to authorizing New Jersey home warranty coverage through private insurance programs, the New Jersey New Home Warranty And Builders’ Registration Act requires that a New Jersey new home warranty security fund be maintained by the New Jersey State Treasurer and administered by the New Jersey Commissioner of Community Affairs on behalf of New Jersey new home buyers. Moneys payable to the New Jersey new home warranty fund are solely for the purpose of paying proven New Jersey new home warranty claims, providing reasonable reserves, including appropriate forms of reinsurance, and covering the costs of New Jersey new home warranty program administration. Prior to making a New Jersey New Home Warranty claim against the New Jersey New Home Warranty Fund for defects covered by New Jersey New Home Warranty, a New Jersey new homeowner shall notify the New Jersey builder of such defects and allow a reasonable time period for their repair. If the repairs are not made within a reasonable time or are not satisfactory to the New Jersey new homeowner, he may file a claim against New Jersey New Home Warranty Fund in the form and manner prescribed by the New Jersey Commissioner of Community Affairs. The New Jersey Commissioner of Community Affairs shall investigate each New Jersey New Home Warranty claim to determine the validity thereof, and the amount of the award that shall be made thereon, and shall hold a hearing if requested by either New Jersey New Home Warranty plaintiff or New Jersey New Home Warranty defendant, in accordance with the provisions of the "Administrative Procedure Act," P.L.1968, c.410 (C.52:14B-1 et seq.) applicable to contested cases. Reasonable New Jersey New Home Warranty hearing fees shall be assessed against the unsuccessful New Jersey New Home Warranty plaintiff or New Jersey New Home Warranty defendant. The amount of the New Jersey New Home Warranty award shall be sufficient to cover the reasonable costs necessary to correct any defect or defects covered under New Jersey New Home Warranty, but the total amount of New Jersey New Home Warranty awards from New Jersey New Home Warranty Fund for any new New Jersey home shall not exceed the purchase price of the new New Jersey home in the first good faith sale thereof or the fair market value on the new New Jersey home on its completion date if there is no good faith sale. All claims submitted by an owner shall first be reviewed through a conciliation or arbitration procedure by the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs, and in the event that the New Jersey new homeowner is found to be in the right, then the New Jersey builder shall be required to correct such claims as determined through the conciliation or arbitration procedure. If a New Jersey builder is unable or willfully refuses to correct such deficiency, then an amount sufficient to cure the problem shall be paid from New Jersey New Home Warranty Fund to the New Jersey new homeowner. In such cases, the New Jersey Commissioner of Community Affairs may then proceed against the New Jersey builder in accordance with subsection b. of section 6 of P.L.1977, c.467 (C.46:3B-6). Upon certification from the New Jersey Commissioner of Community Affairs of the amount of a New Jersey New Home Warranty award, The New Jersey State Treasurer shall make payment to the claimant from New Jersey New Home Warranty Fund. BEFORE BRINING A CLAIM UNDER THE NEW JERSEY NEW HOME WARRANTY AND BUILDER’S REGISTRATION ACT, A HOMEOWNER SHOULD SERIOUSLY CONSIDER CONSUTING WITH A NEW JERSEY LICESENCED ATTORNEY ABOUT THE ELECTION OF REMEDIES UNDER THE NEW JERSEY NEW HOME WARRANTY AND BUILDER’S REGISTRATION ACT. OTHERWISE, THE NEW NEW JERSEY HOMEOWNER MAY MAKE THE MISTAKE OF GIVING UP CERTAIN LEGAL RIGHTS THAT THE NEW NEW JERSEY HOMEOWNER HAS AGAINST A NEW JERSEY BUILDER!!! New Jersey builders benefit from the election of remedies dilemma posed by the New Jersey New Home Warranty And Builders’ Registration Act and its corresponding regulations. Under the New Jersey New Home Warranty And Builders’ Registration Act, New Jersey homebuyer chooses either the New Jersey New Home Warranty And Builders’ Registration Act arbitration or a New Jersey lawsuit against the New Jersey new home builder. Nothing contained in the New Jersey New Home Warranty And Builders’ Registration Act shall affect other rights and remedies available to the New Jersey new homeowner. The New Jersey new homeowner shall have the opportunity to pursue any remedy legally available to the New Jersey new homeowner. However, initiation of procedures to enforce a remedy shall constitute an election which shall bar the New Jersey new homeowner from all other remedies. Nothing contained in the New Jersey New Home Warranty And Builders’ Registration Act shall be deemed to limit the New Jersey new homeowner's right of appeal as applicable to the remedy elected.

WHAT IS A NEW JERSEY BREACH OF IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY?
Under the New Jersey Uniform Commercial Code, every contract for the sale of goods entered into by ‘a merchant with respect to goods of that kind’ includes a New Jersey implied warranty that New Jersey cars, New Jersey trucks, New Jersey SUVs, New Jersey recreational vehicles or other New Jersey products are fit for the ordinary purposes for which such goods are used.

The basic elements of a New Jersey breach of this type of New Jersey implied warranty of merchantability are:
(1) The New Jersey breach of warranty plaintiff purchased goods as defined by the New Jersey
Uniform Commercial Code.
(2) The New Jersey defendant selling New Jersey cars, New Jersey trucks, New Jersey SUVs, New Jersey recreational vehicles or other New Jersey products was a merchant with respect to goods of that kind.
(3) New Jersey cars, New Jersey trucks, New Jersey SUVs, New Jersey recreational vehicles or other New Jersey products fit for the ordinary purposes for which such goods are used.

Perhaps less common are claims of violations of the New Jersey implied warranty of
merchantability based upon allegations that New Jersey cars, New Jersey trucks, New Jersey SUVs, New Jersey recreational vehicles or other New Jersey products:
(1) Are such as to pass without objection in the trade under the New Jersey contract description.
(2) In the case of replaceable goods, they are of fair, average quality within the description.
(3) Are of even kind, quality and quantity within the variations permitted by the agreement.
(4) Are adequately contained, packaged and labeled.
(5) Conform to the promises or affirmations of fact made on the container or
label, if any.

WHAT IS A NEW JERSEY BREACH OF IMPLIED WARRANTY OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE?
Under the New Jersey Uniform Commercial Code, if the New Jersey breach of warranty defendant at the time of contracting has reason to know any particular purpose for which New Jersey cars, New Jersey trucks, New Jersey SUVs, New Jersey recreational vehicles or other New Jersey products are required and that the New Jersey breach of warranty plaintiff is relying on the New Jersey breach of warranty defendant’s skill or judgment to select or furnish suitable goods, there is unless excluded or modified
under the New Jersey Uniform Commercial Code a New Jersey implied warranty that the New Jersey cars, New Jersey trucks, New Jersey SUVs, New Jersey recreational vehicles or other New Jersey products shall be fit for such purpose.

The basic elements of a New Jersey breach of the New Jersey implied warranty of fitness
for a particular purpose are:
(1) The New Jersey breach of warranty plaintiff purchased goods as defined by the New Jersey Uniform Commercial Code.
(2) The New Jersey breach of warranty defendant at the time of contracting has reason to know any particular purpose for which the New Jersey cars, New Jersey trucks, New Jersey SUVs, New Jersey recreational vehicles or other New Jersey products are required and that the New Jersey breach of warranty plaintiff is buying the New Jersey cars, New Jersey trucks, New Jersey SUVs, New Jersey recreational vehicles or other New Jersey products based on the New Jersey breach of warranty defendant’s skill or judgment to select or furnish suitable New Jersey cars, New Jersey trucks, New Jersey SUVs, New Jersey recreational vehicles or other New Jersey products.
(3) The New Jersey breach of warranty plaintiff relied on the New Jersey breach of warranty defendant’s skill or judgment to select or furnish suitable New Jersey cars, New Jersey trucks, New Jersey SUVs, New Jersey recreational vehicles or other New Jersey products.
(4) There existed no valid exclusion or modification of a New Jersey implied warranty that New Jersey cars, New Jersey trucks, New Jersey SUVs, New Jersey recreational vehicles or other New Jersey products shall be fit for such purpose.
(5) New Jersey cars, New Jersey trucks, New Jersey SUVs, New Jersey recreational vehicles or other New Jersey products were not suitable for the New Jersey breach of warranty plaintiff’s
particular purpose for which New Jersey cars, New Jersey trucks, New Jersey SUVs, New Jersey recreational vehicles or other New Jersey products are required.
(6) Within a reasonable time after the New Jersey breach of warranty plaintiff discovers or should have discovered any breach, the New Jersey breach of warranty plaintiff notified the New Jersey breach of warranty defendant of breach.
(7) The New Jersey breach of warranty plaintiff suffered damages from the New Jersey breach of warranty.

WHAT IS A NEW JERSEY BREACH OF IMPLIED WARRANTY OF GOOD TITLE?
In every contract of sale there is implied a New Jersey warranty of good title unless such warranty is specifically excluded by the language or circumstances of the agreement. The New Jersey breach of warranty plaintiff purchaser of New Jersey cars, New Jersey trucks, New Jersey SUVs, New Jersey recreational vehicles or other New Jersey products that are warranted as to title has a right to rely on the fact that the New Jersey breach of warranty plaintiff purchaser will not be required, at some later time, to enter into a contest over the validity of the New Jersey breach of warranty plaintiff purchaser’s ownership of the New Jersey cars, New Jersey trucks, New Jersey SUVs, New Jersey recreational vehicles or other New Jersey products.

The basic elements of a New Jersey breach of the New Jersey implied warranty of good
title are:
(1) There exists a valid contract for the sale of New Jersey cars, New Jersey trucks, New Jersey SUVs, New Jersey recreational vehicles or other New Jersey products.
(2) The New Jersey contract does not expressly disclaim the transfer of valid title to New Jersey cars, New Jersey trucks, New Jersey SUVs, New Jersey recreational vehicles or other New Jersey products by specific language and no circumstances exist which give the New Jersey breach of warranty plaintiff reason to know that the New Jersey breach of warranty defendant seller does not claim title in himself or that he is purporting to sell only such right or title as he or a third person may have.
(3) The title conveyed to the New Jersey breach of warranty plaintiff is not good and/or its transfer is not rightful and/or New Jersey cars, New Jersey trucks, New Jersey SUVs, New Jersey recreational vehicles or other New Jersey products are not delivered to the New Jersey breach of warranty plaintiff free from any security interest or other lien or encumbrance of which the New Jersey breach of warranty plaintiff
at the time of contracting had no knowledge.
(4)The New Jersey breach of warranty plaintiff suffered damages from the New Jersey breach of warranty.

WHAT IS A NEW JERSEY BREACH OF IMPLIED WARRANTY OF GOOD WORKMANSHIP?
The New Jersey implied warranty of good workmanship arises when certain services are performed. It is not uncommon for parties to a service contract to fail to state the New Jersey warranties, if any, associated with the New Jersey services rendered under the New Jersey contract. Also, a New Jersey breach of warranty plaintiff may not have any guarantees as to work performed for another. For example, if a New Jersey home repair contractor provides services to a homeowner and the home is subsequently purchased by a third party, that party may not have any express guarantee for those services. When there is no express contractual provision concerning workmanship, the law implies a covenant that the New Jersey contract will be performed in a reasonably good and workmanlike manner. New Jersey warranties are imposed on service providers because they are often in a better position to prevent
the occurrence of major problems.

Under the New Jersey implied warranty of good workmanship, the basic elements of a New Jersey breach of the New Jersey implied warranty of good workmanship are:
(1) The parties had a valid contract for the provision of services.
(2) There existed no valid exclusion or modification of the implicit promise that the New Jersey services will be performed in a workmanlike manner and/or that the result will be fit for its intended purpose.
(3) The New Jersey services rendered under the New Jersey contract were not performed in a workmanlike manner and/or the result was unfit for its intended purpose.
(4) The New Jersey breach of warranty plaintiff suffered damages from the New Jersey breach of warranty.

WHAT IS A NEW JERSEY BREACH OF IMPLIED WARRANTY OF HABITABILITY?
The New Jersey implied warranty of habitability is an important New Jersey warranty for New Jersey homebuyers and New Jersey tenants. In the absence of a New Jersey express warranty, a New Jersey buyer of a new New Jersey home or used New Jersey home may recover for defects in the New Jersey home associated with its habitability. New Jersey residential leases also include a New Jersey implied warranty of habitability. The basic elements of a New Jersey breach of the New Jersey implied warranty of habitability are:
(1) The New Jersey breach of warranty plaintiff purchased a new New Jersey home or used New Jersey home.
(2) Following sale, of the new New Jersey home or used New Jersey home the New Jersey breach of warranty plaintiff experienced one or more problems that affected facilities vital to the
use of the new New Jersey home or used New Jersey home for residential purposes.
(3) In appropriate New Jersey breach of warranty lawsuits, the New Jersey breach of warranty plaintiff may also be obliged to rule out secondary causes, such as the New Jersey breach of warranty plaintiff’s abuse, misuse or modification causing the problems.
(4) If the New Jersey home is new, it was not constructed in a reasonably workmanlike manner and is unfit for the New Jersey breach of warranty plaintiffs to live in.
(5) If the New Jersey home is used, it is unfit for the New Jersey breach of warranty plaintiffs to live in.
(6) The New Jersey breach of warranty plaintiff suffered damages from the New Jersey breach of warranty.

NEED HELP WITH YOUR NEW JERSEY CASE?
Handling your New Jersey case wrong from the beginning may only cost you more money and time in the end!! Do it right the first time by seeking legal advice from a competent New Jersey lawyer!
Let the Law Office of Paul DePetris help you with your New Jersey case. Not all New Jersey cases require you to pay expensive legal fees to get legal help.

WHY SHOULD NEW JERSEY PRO SE PLAINTIFFS AND NEW JERSEY PRO SE DEFENDANTS SEEK HELP FROM A NEW JERSEY LAWYER?
Handling your New Jersey case wrong from the beginning may only cost you more money and time in the end!! Do it right the first time by seeking legal advice from a competent New Jersey lawyer!
Many New Jersey pro se plaintiffs and New Jersey pro se defendants make the mistake of not consulting a New Jersey lawyer before filing New Jersey Court papers only to later learn that the New Jersey pro se plaintiffs and New Jersey pro se defendants made serious mistakes that could cause them to lose their New Jersey case. Let the Law Office of Paul DePetris help you with your New Jersey case.

CAN I RELY ON NEW JERSEY COURT PERSONNEL FOR LEGAL ADVICE?
New Jersey Court employees cannot give you “free” legal advice and a New Jersey Court judge may refuse to let you claim that you were right in taking an action (or in deciding not to take action) because you relied on advice from such employees. Most New Jersey Court employees are not trained New Jersey attorneys and therefore, they may not know what advice to give you. Working at the New Jersey Court as a non-judge is not the same as practicing law.

CAN I RELY ON NEW JERSEY COURT FORMS PROVIDED BY THE NEW JERSEY COURT?
The New Jersey Court usually provides certain types of New Jersey Court legal forms to the public and those forms are often very helpful. However, beware relying on New Jersey Court forms provided by the New Jersey Court – the New Jersey Court forms are often deceptively simple, while New Jersey cases often are much more complex than they first appear to be. There is simply no substitute for a competent New Jersey attorney licensed to practice law in New Jersey who has experience handling New Jersey cases. New Jersey Court forms don’t talk and New Jersey Court forms and their directions rarely, if ever, cover every possible situation, set of facts or legal issue that may arise in a New Jersey case. Each New Jersey case has its own particular legal issues and therefore, its own challenges. If you can afford a competent New Jersey attorney, it is best to have the New Jersey attorney prepare your New Jersey Court paperwork for you.

CAN I HANDLE A NEW JERSEY CASE MYSELF?
Many New Jersey pro se plaintiffs and New Jersey pro se defendants can and do successfully handle New Jersey cases, from filing the first paperwork to the collection of a New Jersey Court judgment. However, many other New Jersey pro se plaintiffs and New Jersey pro se defendants also make mistakes that lead to the dismissal of their New Jersey cases or that result in the entry of a New Jersey Court money judgment against them. The greater the money at stake, the greater the reason to consider using the New Jersey services of a competent attorney licensed to practice law in New Jersey to handle part or all of the New Jersey case. The following are reasons to use an attorney to handle part or all of your New Jersey case:
• New Jersey Court fees often change
• New Jersey Court rules often change
• New Jersey Court employees cannot give you “free” legal advice and a New Jersey Court judge may refuse to let you claim that you were right in taking an action (or in deciding not to take action) because you relied on advice from such employees
• New Jersey Court forms available on websites may not cover every situation you may face in Court
• each New Jersey case has its own particular legal issues and therefore, its own challenges
• it is very common for New Jersey pro se plaintiffs and New Jersey pro se defendants to file inadequate or incorrect New Jersey Court complaints that result in the New Jersey Court complaints or answers to New Jersey Court complaints being rejected by the New Jersey Court or being dismissed by the New Jersey Court after filing and before or after trial because of procedural deficiencies.
• it is not uncommon for judges to get very frustrated by an unrepresented party’s lack of preparation or ignorance of the facts or law of the New Jersey case.
• a Court has the power to punish unprepared New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants, such as by throwing their New Jersey case out of Court or limiting what they can present at the New Jersey Court trial.
• New Jersey has many published cases, laws, regulations, Court rules and rules of evidence that can be very tricky to understand and that can be used to prevent you from doing much of what you want to do at the New Jersey Court trial.
• it is very common for Courts to refuse to allow a party to use or refer to documents or items at the New Jersey Court trial that the person themselves never prepared. Often New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants stumble into New Jersey Court with a video, photograph, bill or affidavit or other form of written statement, thinking they are going to use it as proof that they lost money or that they are not responsible for someone else’s damages, only to have a New Jersey Court judge tell the New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants that it is not going to even consider such items or documents.
• without the proper preparation, items and documents may never be considered by the New Jersey Court. Also, if there are any legal issues to be dealt with at the New Jersey Court trial, you must be prepared to argue them, which may require you to refer to Court rules, evidence rules, laws, regulations or published cases.
• you cannot show up at the New Jersey Court expecting the judge hearing your New Jersey case to explain Court rules, evidence rules, Court procedure or the details of the law that applies to your New Jersey case. The judge hearing your New Jersey case is not permitted to give you legal advice.

It is important to remember that even if you have an attorney, you could lose your New Jersey case. Hiring an attorney to handle part or all of your New Jersey case does not guarantee your success. However, it may provide what is needed to win your New Jersey case or to avoid certain mistakes.
