    Chapter 3: Establishment of local board

      Section: 26:3-31.8: Penalty enforcement proceeding; reimbursements; injunction; collection of reimbursements

           In any penalty enforcement proceeding brought pursuant to this act the court shall also order the landlord or his agent to reimburse the municipality for the actual costs incurred for any fuel oil delivered and the service charge for refiring the burner, if any, and for reasonable attorney's fees and costs. The court shall further be empowered to issue any appropriate injunctive orders, and to authorize immediate collection of reimbursable costs due the municipality out of the goods and chattels of the landlord, including all sums due, or which may come due, as present or future rents. Any landlord who prevails in such an action shall be entitled to reimbursement by the municipality for all reasonable costs and expenses. Such landlord, however, shall still remain responsible for the cost of any fuel oil delivered and any charge for refiring the burner incurred by the municipality.
