New Hampshire 30 Day Notice To Vacate

Last Updated: March 19, 2024 by Roberto Valenzuela

New Hampshire 30 Day Notice To Vacate is a letter that complies with state legal requirements to terminate a periodic tenancy (i.e. week-to-week or month-to-month) or fixed term lease. The non-terminating party must receive notice at least thirty (30) days before the date of termination.

When To Use a New Hampshire 30 Day Notice To Vacate

A New Hampshire 30 Day Notice To Vacate terminates the following types of tenancy:

  • A fixed-term rental agreement
  • Any periodic tenancy (e.g., week-to-week or month-to-month)
  • An expired lease
  • A rental with no written lease where the tenant pays rent on a monthly basis

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 Vacate

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

  1. Use the full name of the receiving party, and address of record, if known
  2. Specify the termination date of the lease or tenancy
  3. Fill in the full address of the rental premises
  4. Provide updated/current address and phone number information
  5. Print name and sign the notice
  6. 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 Vacate

New Hampshire landlords and tenants may deliver a Notice To Vacate using any of these methods:

  1. Hand delivery to the other party
  2. Leaving the notice at the other party’s “last and usual” address

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.
