New Hampshire Month-to-Month Lease Agreement Template
The New Hampshire month-to-month lease agreement allows a landlord and tenant to create a rental contract that does not cancel until notice is issued by one (1) of the parties. Either the landlord or tenant may terminate the agreement by providing at least thirty (30) days’ written notice to the other party (it is recommended that the notice be sent via certified letter with a returned receipt for proof). The landlord or tenant may also provide the same amount of notice when it comes to any type of change in the agreement, such as raising the rent, adding occupants, etc. The landlord is advised to screen all potential lessees with the rental application before authorizing a lease.
Rent Increase (§ 540:2(II)) – Tenants may be liable for eviction if they fail to comply with a rent increase after receiving thirty (30) days’ notice from the landlord. However, if the lease is a fixed-term contract, the landlord is advised to wait until the lease expires before implementing a rent increase.
Minimum Termination Notice (§ 540:3(II)) – Thirty (30) days’ notice must be provided by either party in order to terminate a lease.
