New Hampshire 30 Day Notice To Comply or Vacate is a letter which complies with state legal standards to begin eviction against a tenant for a lease violation. The landlord decides whether to allow the tenant an opportunity to fix the issue. If they decide against it, or the tenant fails to take appropriate corrective action, the tenant must move out within thirty (30) calendar days of receiving notice.

When To Use a New Hampshire 30 Day Notice To Comply or Vacate

A New Hampshire 30 Day Notice To Comply or Vacate begins the eviction process for the following tenant violations:

  • Causing minor property damage
  • Occupancy violations
  • Allowing pets on the premises without the landlord’s consent
  • Other material violations of the lease
At the landlord’s discretion, the tenant may be allowed an opportunity to “cure” (correct) the violation within the 30-day notice period. This is common practice, but not a legal requirement.
