A New Hampshire notice to enter allows a landlord to enter a tenant’s rental unit within a specified time frame for reasons such as general maintenance, inspection, or showing the unit to prospective buyers or renters. State law does not specify a minimum number of hours or days that a landlord must provide the notice to the tenant. It is advisable for landlords to provide reasonable notice in accordance with the circumstances.
