Jersey Shore Summer Renters Beware

There may be no Snookie in this story, but it's certainly a situation. If you thought your New Jersey real estate agent has to tell you of known dangers that might lead you to reconsider a summer rental, think again. The N.J. Supreme Court ruled this month that agents can keep quiet about property dangers to short-term renters. If you're looking for a Jersey Shore rental for the summer you'd probably like to think there's equal protection under the law, but the ruling means renters won't get the same property information from real estate agents as buyers.
