Hello, and welcome to the NJPropertyRecords Terms and Conditions of Use (“Terms”). The Terms you see below are important because they:
Thanks for choosing NJPropertyRecords (“NJPR,” "NJPropertyRecords," “we,” “us,” “our”). NJPR provides statewide access to public records and software for looking up property information and other content as well as other products and services that may be developed from time to time. By signing up or otherwise using any of these NJPropertyRecords services, including all associated features and functionalities, websites and user interfaces, as well as all content and software applications associated with our services (collectively, the “NJPropertyRecords Service” or “Service”), or accessing any property records, or other content or material that is made available through the Service (the “Content”) you are entering into a binding contract with NJPropertyRecords, LLC.
Your agreement with us includes these Terms and any additional terms that you agree to, as discussed in the Entire Agreement section below, other than terms with any third parties (collectively, the “Agreements”). The Agreements include terms regarding future changes to the Agreements, export controls, automatic renewals, limitations of liability, privacy, waiver of class actions, and resolution of disputes by arbitration instead of in court. If you wish to review the terms of the Agreements, the current effective version of the Agreements can be found on NJPropertyRecords’s website. You acknowledge that you have read and understood the Agreements, accept these Agreements, and agree to be bound by them. If you don’t agree with (or cannot comply with) the Agreements, then you may not use the NJPropertyRecords Service or access any Content.
In order to use the NJPropertyRecords Service and access any Content, you need to (1) be 18 years or older, or be 13 years or older and have your parent or guardian’s consent to the Agreements, (2) have the power to enter a binding contract with us and not be barred from doing so under any applicable laws, and (3) reside in the United States. You also promise that any registration information that you submit to NJPropertyRecords is true, accurate, and complete, and you agree to keep it that way at all times.
Occasionally we may make changes to the Agreements. When we make material changes to the Agreements, we’ll provide you with notice as appropriate under the circumstances, e.g., by displaying a prominent notice within the Service or by sending you an email. In some cases, we will notify you in advance, and your continued use of the Service after the changes have been made will constitute your acceptance of the changes. Please therefore make sure you read any such notice carefully. If you do not wish to continue using the Service under the new version of the Agreements, you may terminate your account by contacting us. If you received a Trial or a Paid Subscription through a third party, you must cancel the applicable Paid Subscription through such third party.
Here’s some information about all the ways you can enjoy NJPropertyRecords.
You can find a description of our Service options on our website, and we will explain which Service options are available to you when you create a NJPropertyRecords account. Certain options are provided to you free-of-charge. The NJPropertyRecords Service that does not require payment is currently referred to as the “Free Service.” Other options require payment before you can access them (the “Paid Subscriptions”). We may also offer special promotional plans, memberships, or services, including offerings of third-party products and services in conjunction with or through the NJPropertyRecords Service. We are not responsible for the products and services provided by such third parties. We reserve the right to modify, terminate or otherwise amend our offered subscription plans and promotional offerings at any time in accordance with these Terms.
From time to time, we or others on our behalf may offer trials of Paid Subscriptions for a specified period without payment or at a reduced rate (a “Trial”). NJPropertyRecords may determine your eligibility for a Trial, and withdraw or modify a Trial at any time without prior notice and with no liability, to the extent permitted under applicable law.
For some Trials, we’ll require you to provide your payment details to start the Trial. By providing such details you agree that we may automatically begin charging you for the Paid Subscription on the first day following the end of the Trial on a recurring monthly basis or another interval that we disclose to you in advance. IF YOU DO NOT WANT THIS CHARGE, YOU MUST CANCEL THE APPLICABLE PAID SUBSCRIPTION BEFORE THE END OF THE TRIAL BY CLICKING HERE IF YOU SIGNED UP FOR THE TRIAL THROUGH NJPropertyRecords, OR IF YOU RECEIVED YOUR TRIAL THROUGH A THIRD PARTY, YOU MUST CANCEL THE APPLICABLE PAID SUBSCRIPTION THROUGH THE THIRD PARTY.
You may purchase a Paid Subscription directly from NJPropertyRecords or through a third party either by (1) paying a subscription fee in advance on a monthly basis or some other recurring interval disclosed to you prior to your purchase; or (2) pre-payment giving you access to the NJPropertyRecords Service for a specific time period (“Pre-Paid Period”).
NJPropertyRecords may change the price for the Paid Subscriptions, including recurring subscription fees, the Pre-Paid Period (for periods not yet paid), or Codes, from time to time and will communicate any price changes to you in advance and, if applicable, how to accept those changes. Price changes will take effect at the start of the next subscription period following the date of the price change. Subject to applicable law, you accept the new price by continuing to use the NJPropertyRecords Service after the price change takes effect. If you do not agree with a price change, you have the right to reject the change by unsubscribing from the Paid Subscription prior to the price change going into effect.
Unless your Paid Subscription has been purchased for a Pre-Paid Period, your payment to NJPropertyRecords or the third party through which you purchased the Paid Subscription will automatically renew at the end of the applicable subscription period, unless you cancel your Paid Subscription before the end of the then-current subscription period by clicking here if you purchased the Paid Subscription through NJPropertyRecords, or if you purchased the Paid Subscription through a third party, by canceling the Paid Subscription through such third party. The cancellation will take effect the day after the last day of the current subscription period, and you will be downgraded to the Free Service. We do not provide refunds or credits for any partial subscription periods.

You are solely responsible for all User Content that you post. NJPropertyRecords is not responsible for User Content nor does it endorse any opinion contained in any User Content. YOU AGREE THAT IF ANYONE BRINGS A CLAIM AGAINST NJPropertyRecords RELATED TO USER CONTENT THAT YOU POST, THEN, TO THE EXTENT PERMISSIBLE UNDER LOCAL LAW, YOU WILL INDEMNIFY AND HOLD NJPropertyRecords HARMLESS FROM AND AGAINST ALL DAMAGES, LOSSES, AND EXPENSES OF ANY KIND (INCLUDING REASONABLE ATTORNEY FEES AND COSTS) ARISING OUT OF SUCH CLAIM.

The NJPropertyRecords Service makes such Content available to you unmodified.
If you provide feedback, ideas or suggestions to NJPropertyRecords in connection with the NJPropertyRecords Service or Content (“Feedback”), you acknowledge that the Feedback is not confidential and you authorize NJPropertyRecords to use that Feedback without restriction and without payment to you. Feedback is considered a type of User Content.
You grant NJPropertyRecords a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, fully paid, worldwide license to use, reproduce, make available to the public (e.g. perform or display), publish, translate, modify, create derivative works from, and distribute any of your User Content in connection with the Service through any medium, whether alone or in combination with other Content or materials, in any manner and by any means, method or technology, whether now known or hereafter created. Aside from the rights specifically granted herein, you retain ownership of all rights, including intellectual property rights, in the User Content. Where applicable and permitted under applicable law, you also agree to waive and not enforce any “moral rights” or equivalent rights, such as your right to be identified as the author of any User Content, including Feedback, and your right to object to derogatory treatment of such User Content.
NJPropertyRecords respects intellectual property rights and expects you to do the same. We’ve established a few ground rules for you to follow when using the Service, to make sure NJPropertyRecords stays enjoyable for everyone. You must follow these rules and should encourage other users to do the same.
The following is not permitted for any reason whatsoever:
Please respect NJPropertyRecords, the owners of the Content, and other users of the NJPropertyRecords Service. Don’t engage in any activity, post any User Content, or register and/or use a username, which is or includes material that:
You acknowledge and agree that posting any User Content that violates these User guidelines (or that NJPropertyRecords reasonably believes violates these User guidelines) may result in immediate termination or suspension of your NJPropertyRecords account. You also agree that NJPropertyRecords may reclaim your username for any reason.
Please be thoughtful about how you use the NJPropertyRecords Service and what you share. The NJPropertyRecords Service includes interactive features, including the ability to post User Content and share content.

Your password protects your user account, and you are solely responsible for keeping your password confidential and secure. You understand that you are responsible for all use (including any unauthorized use) of your username and password on the Service. If your username or password is lost or stolen, or if you believe there has been unauthorized access to your account by a third party, you must notify us immediately and change your password as soon as possible.
NJPropertyRecords will make reasonable efforts to keep the NJPropertyRecords Service operational. However, certain technical difficulties, maintenance or testing, or updates required to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements, may, from time to time, result in temporary interruptions. NJPropertyRecords reserves the right, periodically and at any time, to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, functions and features of the NJPropertyRecords Service, with advance notice where possible, all without liability to you, except where prohibited by law, for any interruption, modification, or discontinuation of the NJPropertyRecords Service or any function or feature thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if you have prepaid fees to NJPropertyRecords for Paid Subscriptions that NJPropertyRecords permanently discontinues prior to the end of the Pre-Paid Period (defined in the Payments and cancellations section), NJPropertyRecords will refund you the prepaid fees for the Pre-Paid Period after such discontinuation. You understand, agree, and accept that NJPropertyRecords will make reasonable efforts, although it has no obligation to maintain, support, upgrade, or update the Service, or to provide all or any specific content through the Service. NJPropertyRecords and/or the owners of any Content may, from time to time, remove any such Content without notice. This section will be enforced to the extent permissible by applicable law.

The Agreements will continue to apply to you until terminated by either you or NJPropertyRecords. However, you acknowledge and agree that the perpetual license granted by you in relation to User Content, including Feedback, is irrevocable and will therefore continue after expiry or termination of any of the Agreements for any reason. NJPropertyRecords may terminate the Agreements or suspend your access to the NJPropertyRecords Service at any time, including in the event of your actual or suspected unauthorized use of the NJPropertyRecords Service and/or Content, or non-compliance with the Agreements, or if we withdraw Services and/or Content (in which case we shall provide you with reasonable notice in advance of doing so). If you or NJPropertyRecords terminate the Agreements, or if NJPropertyRecords suspends your access to the NJPropertyRecords Service, you agree that NJPropertyRecords shall have no liability or responsibility to you, and NJPropertyRecords will not refund any amounts that you have already paid, to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law. You may terminate the Agreements at any time.

You acknowledge and agree that the owners of the Content and certain distributors (such as data providers) are intended beneficiaries of the Agreements and have the right to enforce the Agreements directly against you. Other than as set out in this section, the Agreements are not intended to grant rights to anyone except you and NJPropertyRecords, and in no event shall the Agreements create any third party beneficiary rights. Furthermore, the rights to terminate, rescind, or agree to any variation, waiver, or settlement of the Agreements are not subject to the consent of any other person.
Other than as stated in this section or as explicitly agreed upon in writing between you and NJPropertyRecords, the Agreements constitute all the terms and conditions agreed upon between you and NJPropertyRecords and supersede any prior agreements in relation to the subject matter of these Agreements, whether written or oral.
Please note, however, that certain aspects of your use of the NJPropertyRecords Service may be governed by additional agreements. That could include, for example, access to the NJPropertyRecords Service as a result of a free or discounted Trials, or together with other services. When you are presented with an offer for such aspects of your use, you will be presented with any related additional agreement, and you may have an opportunity to agree to additional terms. To the extent that there is any irreconcilable conflict between any additional terms and these Terms, the additional terms shall prevail.
Unless as otherwise stated in the Agreements, should any provision of the Agreements be held invalid or unenforceable for any reason or to any extent, such invalidity or enforceability shall not in any manner affect or render invalid or unenforceable the remaining provisions of the Agreements, and the application of that provision shall be enforced to the extent permitted by law.
Any failure by NJPropertyRecords or any third party beneficiary to enforce the Agreements or any provision thereof shall not waive NJPropertyRecords or the applicable third party beneficiary’s right to do so.
As used in these Terms, the words “include” and “including,” and variations thereof, will be deemed to be followed by the words “without limitation.”
NJPropertyRecords may assign the Agreements, and any of its rights under the Agreements, in whole or in part, and NJPropertyRecords may delegate any of its obligations under the Agreements. You may not assign the Agreements, in whole or in part, nor transfer or sub-license your rights under the Agreements, to any third party.

The Agreements (and any non-contractual disputes/claims arising out of or in connection with them) are subject to the laws of the state of New Jersey, United States of America, without regard to choice or conflicts of law principles. Further, you and NJPropertyRecords agree to the jurisdiction of the Northern District of New Jersey to resolve any dispute, claim, or controversy that relates to or arises in connection with the Agreements (and any non-contractual disputes/claims relating to or arising in connection with them) and is not subject to mandatory arbitration under Section 22.2.1.
This Arbitration Agreement applies only to users in the United States.
You and NJPropertyRecords agree that any dispute, claim, or controversy between you and NJPropertyRecords arising in connection with or relating in any way to these Agreements or to your relationship with NJPropertyRecords as a user of the Service (whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and whether the claims arise during or after the termination of the Agreements) will be determined by mandatory binding individual (not class) arbitration. You and NJPropertyRecords further agree that the arbitrator shall have the exclusive power to rule on his or her own jurisdiction, including any objections with respect to the existence, scope or validity of the Arbitration Agreement or to the arbitrability of any claim or counterclaim. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY IN ARBITRATION, AND COURT REVIEW OF AN ARBITRATION AWARD IS LIMITED. There may be more limited discovery than in court. The arbitrator must follow this agreement and can award the same damages and relief as a court (including attorney fees), except that the arbitrator may not award any relief, including declaratory or injunctive relief, benefiting anyone but the parties to the arbitration. This arbitration provision will survive termination of the Agreements.
Notwithstanding the clause above (22.2.1), you and NJPropertyRecords both agree that nothing in this Arbitration Agreement will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit either of our rights, at any time, to (1) bring an individual action in a U.S. small claims court or (2) bring an individual action seeking only temporary or preliminary individualized injunctive relief in a court of law, pending a final ruling from the arbitrator. In addition, this Arbitration Agreement doesn’t stop you or us from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf (or vice versa).
YOU AND NJPropertyRecords AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. Unless both you and NJPropertyRecords agree, no arbitrator or judge may consolidate more than one person’s claims or otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitrator may award injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. If a court decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this paragraph’s limitations as to a particular claim for relief, then that claim (and only that claim) must be severed from the arbitration and may be brought in court.
Either you or we may start arbitration proceedings. Any arbitration between you and NJPropertyRecords will take place under the Consumer Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) then in force (the “AAA Rules”), as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. You and NJPropertyRecords agree that the Federal Arbitration Act applies and governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision (despite the choice of law provision above). The AAA Rules, as well as instructions on how to file an arbitration proceeding with the AAA, appear at adr.org, or you may call the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.
Any arbitration hearings will take place in New Jersey, provided that if the claim is for $25,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted (1) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (2) through a non-appearance based telephonic hearing; or (3) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules in the county (or parish) of your billing address.
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other, by certified mail, Federal Express, UPS, or Express Mail (signature required), or in the event that we do not have a physical address on file for you, by electronic mail ("Notice"). NJPropertyRecords's address for Notice is: NJPropertyRecords, LLC, Attn: General Counsel, 174 Lamington Road, POBOX 180, Oldwick, NJ 08858, USA. The Notice must (1) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (2) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). We agree to use good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if we do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or NJPropertyRecords may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or NJPropertyRecords shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. All documents and information disclosed in the course of the arbitration shall be kept strictly confidential by the recipient and shall not be used by the recipient for any purpose other than for purposes of the arbitration or the enforcement of the arbitrator’s decision and award and shall not be disclosed except in confidence to persons who have a need to know for such purposes or as required by applicable law.
If this Arbitration Agreement is invalidated in whole or in part, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 22.1 shall govern any claim in court arising out of or related to the Agreements.
