The New Hampshire lease termination letter (30-day notice) is a legal document employed by landlords to end month-to-month lease agreements with their tenants. This notice informs the tenant that the lease will be discontinued, and they are required to vacate the rental property within thirty (30) days from the notice’s service date.
Similarly, tenants can use this form to conclude their monthly tenancy with the landlord. Should the tenant overstay beyond this period and decline to leave the property, the landlord is entitled to initiate legal eviction proceedings to have the tenant lawfully removed by law enforcement.
Governing Law — NH. Rev. Stat. § 540:3.
Tenancy Length — Less than 1 year.
Reasons to Use a 30-Day Notice to Vacate
Specific grounds warrant the use of a 30-day Notice to Vacate for ending a month-to-month tenancy:
- Flexible Terms for Both Sides: The 30-day notice grants flexibility, allowing both landlords and tenants to end their month-to-month rental agreement for various reasons, bypassing the constraints of a long-term lease. This adaptability is beneficial for managing personal life changes, financial alterations, or the necessity to move.
- Lease Completion Practices: Upon a rental period’s end, landlords are not permitted to evict or force tenants out without a valid reason. Tenants are entitled to remain in the property until the lease term concludes as long as they comply with all the lease terms.
