I'm a landlord in New Jersey that lives in the 2 family home with a common entrance. The tenants have a nasty habit of not only leaving the main entrance door unlocked but I have found it wide open numerous times. I've notice the door may be open after they leave for work (meaning it would be open all day if I'm not home to close it). Is it legal to install an automatic self-closing door?

You are the Landlord, so you can do anything reasonable and legal. Plus, you have a possible exposure if there were a robbery or worse, so anything you do to prevent that should be allowed.
