New Hampshire 30 Day Notice To Quit

Last Updated: March 19, 2024 by Roberto Valenzuela

New Hampshire 30 Day Notice To Quit is a letter which complies with state legal requirements to begin an eviction process when tenants refuse to sign a lease amendment, or where the landlord has a legitimate business or economic reason to terminate. The tenant is not given an opportunity to take corrective action, and must move out within thirty (30) calendar days of receiving notice.

When To Use a New Hampshire 30 Day Notice To Quit

A New Hampshire 30 Day Notice To Quit begins an eviction for the following situations:

  • The tenant refuses to sign an amendment to the lease agreement
  • The landlord has a valid business reason to terminate
  • The landlord has a valid economic reason to terminate

Some types of New Hampshire lease termination notice may allow different reasons for termination, or different notice periods. This may also apply to an eviction notice issued because of a lease or legal violation.

    How To Write a New Hampshire 30 Day Notice To Quit

    To help ensure the legal compliance of a Notice To Quit:

    1. Use the full name of the receiving parties, and address of record, if known
    2. Specify the basis upon which the tenancy will terminate
    3. Specify the termination date of the lease or tenancy
    4. Fill in the full address of the rental premises
    5. Provide updated/current address and phone number information
    6. Print name and sign the notice
    7. Complete the certificate of service by indicating the date and method of notice delivery, along with printed name and signature

    It is easy to lose an otherwise justified legal action because of improper notice. Check carefully to ensure enough time after notice is delivered, not when it’s sent.

    How To Serve a New Hampshire 30 Day Notice To Quit

    New Hampshire landlords may deliver an eviction notice using any of these methods:

    1. Hand delivery to the tenant
    2. Leaving the notice at the tenant’s “last and usual” place of residence

    In almost all cases, notice is legally served when it is received by the other party, NOT when it’s sent. Check specified date of termination carefully to ensure compliance with the legal requirements for a notice period.
