Letter of Notice (30 days notice period) – For the termination of a monthly rental agreement in accordance with rsa 540:2. A minimum of thirty (30) days is required. When the tenant leaves a rental unit, the landlord has thirty (30) days to repay the entire deposit plus interest or send a written statement of all deductions from the deposit for repairs, cleaning, etc., the cost of each repair (supported by copies of corresponding receipts, estimates, B contracts, etc.) and the balance of the deposit (RSA 540-A: 7). The tenant must inform the landlord of his new address within 30 days of the move. The notification must be in writing, but does not need to be formal. Example: Martha signs a 2-year lease to rent an apartment in one of Mr. Buck`s large apartment complexes. Martha pays her deposit, which is equivalent to one month`s rent, when she signs the lease. Lord. Buck`s agent gave him a receipt stating that the deposit funds were held in an account with 2nd National Bank in Concord. Martha moves into her new apartment the first of the month and before her friends help her move into her furniture, she walks through the unit in search of pre-existing damage. She finds a large stain on the dining room carpet, as well as slightly worn stains on the linoleum in the kitchen and a few small holes in the bedroom glass. When she has finished creating the inventory, she signs and dates it.

The next day, she makes a copy of the inventory and sends the original to Mr. Buck`s office, where she keeps the copy for her own records. Beware of “waivers” in a lease where the tenant waives his rights under certain conditions. For example, an auto-renewal clause automatically renews an expired lease unless you notify the landlord in writing that you do not intend to renew the lease. The maximum occupancy clause limits the number of people who can live in the apartment. A landlord may also include a clause to force a rent increase in the middle of the lease if property taxes are increased. In the event that a tenant has not paid the rent, the landlord must make a written request to pay the money before issuing the notice of termination. The notice of termination for non-payment of rent must declare the tenant`s right to prevent eviction by paying the rent due plus $15 before the last day of the notice of termination (RSA 540:3, IV).

If payment is made, eviction is no longer possible due to non-payment of rent (RSA 540:2-5, 9). However, tenants can only avoid eviction by “curing” non-payment three times in a calendar year. Leases, which usually last one year, are legally binding contracts. Leases provide security for tenants. Read an agreement before signing it and keep a copy for your records. If you have roommates and one of them moves, you can still be responsible for paying their share of the rent until you find a new one. Landlords can ask for references and proof of income to verify tenants. Once everything is verified, the owners will offer you either a lease or a rental agreement at will.

An all-you-can-eat lease offers more flexibility, but a lease offers more security. At the beginning of the rental, you can ask a tenant to pay the rent for the last month in advance and leave a security deposit of up to one month of rental value. Tenants have additional responsibilities that are not part of new Hampshire`s Landlord/Tenant Act, but are subject to contract law. Tenants are responsible for respecting the agreements set out in the lease. Tenants are also responsible for maintaining the landlord`s property in an acceptable manner. In most cases, tenants are responsible for notifying the landlord at least 30 days in advance of their intention to leave the rental unit, unless the lease provides for a different period. The landlord may access the rental unit at any time in accordance with RSA 540-A:3 by giving reasonable notice to the tenant in the circumstances. If a rental unit is not equipped with a smoke/fire detector or if the hallways or stairs of the building are not equipped with smoke/fire detectors, the tenant must contact the landlord and request the installation of the equipment and contact the local fire department officials to encourage the landlord to comply with this state law. The tenant can reverse the eviction order in the first three cases by “repairing” the situation, i.e.

paying the rent, repairing the damage, etc. An owner spends a lot of time managing properties. This may include inspecting a property before renting it out. A rental agent can also arrange for a contractor to come and prepare rent for a client, or resolve maintenance issues as soon as a tenant moves in. Other duties include answering questions from tenants or potential tenants and managing daily life in the office. The Office of Housing Stability helps landlords and tenants resolve housing issues. If you have any questions, call 617-635-4200 or email rentalhousing@boston.gov. We can help you with all common issues and more. You can also report non-urgent cases to BOS:311. An all-you-can-eat rental gives you the option to move with the landlord after appropriate 30 days` written notice.

It also allows the landlord to leave you with appropriate 30 days` written notice or increase your rent. New Hampshire has a special procedure for deportation. No landlord can legally evict a tenant without following the steps set out in state law (RSA 540). A tenant can be evicted for breach of the lease. If the tenant does not have a written lease, he can be evicted for various reasons. In New Hampshire, tenants who rent out part of a house and a house can be evicted for almost any reason. A landlord is responsible for documenting the terms and agreement for each leased property. A landlord collects the deposit for new rent and the first month`s rent based on the tenant`s rental conditions and the date of move-in. A rental agent is sometimes responsible for renewing leases or terminating leases at the end of a lease. Rental agents should be familiar with all real estate laws, including local, state, and federal fair housing regulations.

The list of defects and damages to the rental unit, which should be given to the landlord within 5 days, is intended to protect tenants from damages from previous tenants. Each new tenant must record the defects of the rental unit when moving in. You should include the condition of walls, floors, carpets, windows (screens, moldings, window sills and curtains), appliances, and furniture in your inspection. Notice cracks, holes, worn stains, stains, dirt, etc. This inventory must be signed and dated by you and your landlord. Make a copy of this inventory before returning it to your landlord within 5 days to keep the copy of your lease. To provide additional protection for tenants, New Hampshire law also requires landlords to provide smoke detectors for their rental units. RSA 153:10-a requires that each rental unit be equipped with at least one automatic smoke or fire alarm located in each hallway or area next to a sleeping area. The law also stipulates that apartment buildings must be equipped with automatic smoke/fire warning devices on each floor, in each common staircase and in each common corridor.

The landlord is responsible for keeping these smoke and fire detectors in proper operating conditions. A rental agent performs tasks related to managing rental properties and finding successful tenants to fill vacancies in rental properties. Rental agents can also provide services to existing tenants or help renew the lease. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, a college degree is not required to become an agent, but many aspiring agents take a state-approved pre-licensing course to progress. Many specialize in renting apartments, apartments or renting commercial real estate, including office buildings or shopping malls. Fires, floods or natural disasters: By law, homeowner`s insurance must cover up to $750 per household for costs or damage to a tenant affected by a fire. If your apartment is uninhabitable, a landlord will not be able to charge you rent. The city can help you find temporary housing in emergency situations. Before entering into a rental agreement, personally check the condition of the rental unit.

If you can`t, send someone you trust for you. Leases in New Hampshire bind a landlord, the “owner,” and a tenant, the “tenant,” to a contract that determines the payment of rent and other terms. The document must be signed between the parties and a witness is not required, although it is recommended. The parties must comply with the laws of the State under Chapter 540 (Proceedings against Tenants). In New Hampshire, a landlord who owns more than six units cannot claim more than one month`s rent or $100, whichever is greater, as a security deposit. The landlord must keep the deposits in a special escrow account or file a deposit with the local municipality to ensure repayment. Example: Martha writes to her landlord`s agent two months before her lease expires to declare that she does not want to renew her lease. After Martha pulls her furniture out of the apartment, the agent becomes Mr. . . .
