A New Hampshire month-to-month lease agreement is a contract between a tenant and landlord that establishes the terms for renting residential space on a monthly basis. The agreement permits the tenant to occupy the premises for one (1) month at a time. If either party wishes to terminate the lease, they must provide the other with thirty (30) days’ notice before the desired vacancy date. Landlords may find this arrangement beneficial as they can modify the current lease terms, increase the rent, or evict tenants with short notice. It is also advantageous for tenants who are unable or unwilling to commit to a year-long lease.
