ACTIONS AGAINST TENANTS
540:16-a Hearsay Exception.
In any possessory action based on allegations concerning the behavior of the defendant or his family or guests, records of complaints made by other tenants to the landlord or his agent concerning such behavior shall be competent evidence if:
I. The landlord or other qualified witness testifies to its identity and the mode of its preparation;
II. It was made at or near the time of the receipt of the complaint; and
III. In the opinion of the court, the sources of information, method and time of preparation, and proximity in time of the complaint to the alleged tenant behavior, were such as to justify its admission.
