A New Hampshire month-to-month rental agreement is a legal document that establishes a brief tenancy between a landlord and tenant without an end date. This type of lease renews automatically at the end of each monthly period, continuing indefinitely until either the landlord or tenant decides to end the tenancy.
Landlords are required to provide tenants with a receipt for any security deposit received. Moreover, they must give tenants a written inventory of the property’s condition within five days after the tenancy begins. Tenants should fill out this inventory, noting any existing damages, and return it to the landlord within five days.
Changes to the lease require a notice from either the landlord or the tenant. It’s advised to send such a notice through certified mail with a return receipt to ensure the other party acknowledges its receipt. A landlord might also require a tenant to fill out a rental application to verify their financial stability and ability to pay the rent each month.
Minimum Termination Period: Either party is required to give a minimum of a 30-day notice before the next rent due date to terminate.
Governing Law: § 540:11(2)
