Landlord and Tenant - Tips from Move-in through the End of the Lease

  1. The Term of the Lease: Keeping One Eye Open

After the tenant has moved in and starts paying rent, landlords often feel that there work is done and that all they have to do is wait for the rent to arrive. Though a landlord who has thus far dotted every "i" and crossed every "t" should sleep more soundly at night than one whose efforts have been lacking, a good landlord should not hibernate through the middle of a lease. He or she should continue to take steps to ensure the relationship remains stable and the property is being maintained.

Landlord and Tenant Tips for a Great Relationship

Landlords who have problems with tenants in New Hampshire face numerous challenges. New Hampshire laws contain protections for tenants in virtually every aspect of the landlord-tenant relationship: from handling a security deposit to collecting rent, maintaining the premises, or seeking an eviction. This occurred due to Landlord abuses over the years. The law tends to overcompensate where there have been egregious offenses in an area of law.
