There are several issues here. If she does not intend to move in, That cannot be a basis to evict under the Anti Eviction Act (AEA) Likewise an eviction for purposes of retaliation. The issue becomes proving it. The proximity of time between the violation and the notice to quit is some proof of retaliation. In addition, it is some evidence of lack of intent to move in. Under NJ law if she relets the unit within 6 months of the eviction, she is liable in a civil suit.
