New Hampshire Tenant Eviction Notice

The New Hampshire eviction process begins with a written notice to the tenant informing them rent is overdue or that a provision in the lease has been violated. The type of notice for a landlord to serve on the tenant depends on the reason for the attempted eviction.

Demand for Rent

In any landlord-tenant matter where the tenant has failed to pay rent, the landlord must first serve a written notice called a Demand for Rent. It may be served at the same time as the Eviction Notice. The notice must specify the amount owed and be either personally served or left at the unit with a subtenant of suitable age and discretion or conspicuously posted such as on the unit’s front door. The New Hampshire eviction process permits a landlord to combine the eviction proceeding with an action for money damages such as rent owed.

Along with the Demand for Rent, or other violations of the lease, the landlord must also serve an Eviction Notice stating the specific provision violated in the lease.

If the reason for eviction is nonpayment of rent, the Notice must state that the tenant has 7-days to leave along with the right to cure by paying the rent within this time. The tenant must also pay $15 along with total amount of rent due to remain.

The 7-day notice may also be used if the reason for evicting the tenant is for conduct that has harmed other tenants or damages to the unit. The landlord must give written warning first before the notices are issued.

For all other reasons such as for termination of the lease, the Notice must be for 30-days to vacate.
