New Hampshire Eviction Process

To legally evict a tenant in New Hampshire, landlords must serve an eviction notice, file a lawsuit with the district court, and have the tenant served with the complaint and summons. If the tenant contests, they file for a court appearance, and both parties attend a hearing.

If the court rules in favor of the landlord, a writ of possession is issued, giving the tenant seven days to appeal or vacate. If the tenant fails to leave, law enforcement will forcibly remove them. This process ensures that evictions are conducted legally and fairly.
