New State-Mandated Business Registration and Insurance Requirements

The State of New Jersey now mandates that all owners of businesses and multi-family properties maintain certain minimum levels of liability insurance and register annually with the municipality in which they are located, or be subject to a monetary fine. 

In accordance with this new law, the Borough enacted Ordinance No. 2022-1527 to implement these new requirements.  A copy of the ordinance can be found at Borough of Montvale, NJ New Laws (

No later than January 31, or within 30 days of registering the business or obtaining ownership of the rental units, all businesses and owners of multi-family residential properties are required to:

  • Obtain the minimum levels of insurance required by state law and set forth in the ordinance
  • Complete the required form and return it to the Borough Clerk, 12 DePiero Drive, Montvale, New Jersey 07645
  • Enclose a filing fee of $50.00

Failure to return the completed form by this deadline may subject you to a monetary penalty.
