A New Hampshire eviction notice is a document intended for landlords seeking to notify a tenant that they are no longer in compliance with their rental contract. The notice should include the specific violation and the steps the tenant must take to fix the issue. This is commonly for late rent but can be for any noncompliance. If the tenant does not return to compliance within the statutory term the lease may terminate with the landlord able to file an eviction lawsuit at the local district court.

By Type (2)

Notice to Quit (For All Lease Violation Types) – Check the appropriate box on the form for the notice that best matches the tenant’s violation:

Non-Payment of Rent – 7 days’ notice. The Demand for Rent is required to be attached.

Non-Compliance – 30 days’ notice.

In most cases, the tenant shall have the right to cure the violation. In relation to non-payment, the tenant shall have seven (7) days plus must pay a $15 fee along with any other charges claimed by the landlord. If the tenant has received a demand notice 3 times in a twelve-month period, he or she will not be able to cure the violation.

Rent is due on the date specified in the lease. If it is not received by the landlord on that date, it is considered late and the landlord may proceed with a demand notice.

How to Evict (Process)

Hand placing eviction notice on door.

Step 1 – In New Hampshire, before a landlord can begin eviction proceedings, he or she must inform the tenant of any breach of the lease and give them an opportunity to fix it. If it is a breach for non-payment, the landlord must deliver a Demand for Rent and an Eviction Notice and give the tenant 7 days to pay. If it is for another breach other than non-payment of rent, the landlord may provide a non-compliance notice, such as a Notice to Quit (For All Lease Violation Types).

Step 2 – If the tenant fails to cure the breach (either pay all the rent that is due or fix the issue that caused the lease to be violated), the landlord may proceed to the local district court and file the following forms:

In addition, the Appearance Form will schedule a hearing date and there will be a fee assessed in the amount of $125 plus $1 for the Writ (NHJB-2333-DP).

Step 3 – If the Judge rules in the favor of the landlord then a Writ of Possession will be issued. This form must be taken to the local county sheriff’s office and a legal lock-out of the property will be conducted if the tenant does not vacate themselves.
