Multiple Dwelling Reporting Rule (MDRR)

About MDRR

The New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (LAD) prohibits discrimination on the basis of membership in a protected class, including race, creed, color, national origin, ancestry, marital status, civil union status, domestic partnership status, familial status, sex, gender identity or expression, affectional or sexual orientation, disability, nationality, or source of lawful income used for rental or mortgage payments, in all aspects of the sale or leasing of real property. The New Jersey Division on Civil Rights (DCR) enforces the LAD. The governing regulations require that the owner of every multiple apartment dwelling which has 25 units or more must file an annual report with DCR, the MDRR. The MDRR contains demographic information about applicants for housing, information about turnovers, rental rates and apartment size, and whether developments are barrier-free.

The filing of reports is mandatory. The deadline for filing annual reports is January 30th. For more information, please see DCR’s MDRR forms below.

Any person who fails to comply with the requirements of the MDRR may be subject to the penalty provisions of the law. If the subject property has been sold, it is mandatory to submit the new owner’s name and address to the Division on Civil Rights

If there has been a change in ownership or registered agent information, you can make that change directly on the filing portal.

If you own and/or manage any other apartment complexes in New Jersey with 25 units or more and you have not received a filing notice for that complex, please contact the Division on Civil Rights to register additional complexes.

A separate report must be submitted for each complex of 25 units or more. If you have any questions, please call the MDRR Unit at (609) 984-3138 or e-mail
