Buyer Beware: Tidelands Claims Can Affect Shore Purchases

Homes are bought and sold all the time in Stone Harbor, Avalon, Sea Isle and other coastal communities. But what should be a simple sale of real estate can quickly become complicated, frustrating and expensive if the property is affected by a tidelands claim.

Real Estate Development Financing Available Through NJEDA

If you are a for-profit or non-profit developer or business seeking to advance a real estate development project in New Jersey, you may be eligible for up to $3 million in financing through the New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA). The NJEDA has created the Real Estate Impact Fund to support and foster redevelopment in strategic urban and other significant locations in New Jersey that would not otherwise occur in the near term, and to strengthen existing and catalyze future development opportunities and private investment.

New Jersey Estate Tax-Soon to be a Thing of the Past

For years New Jersey has been an unfriendly place to die, given the fact that it imposes both a Transfer Inheritance Tax and an Estate Tax, or both, on some estates. New Jersey’s Estate Tax is currently imposed upon all estates exceeding $675,000. However, on October 14, 2016 Governor Christie signed a new law that increases the Estate Tax threshold from $675,000 to $2,000,000 starting January 1, 2017. One year later as of January 1, 2018, the New Jersey Estate Tax will be repealed completely. This should be a welcome relief and give New Jersey residents less of a reason to leave the Garden State to seek domiciles in other states.
