NH: does demand for rent (by MB [NH]) Posted on: Jan 13, 2018 9:36 AM

Hi folks,

In NH I need to post or deliver a demand for rent before I can post and certify mail out the Eviction Notice, aka pay or Quit.

My question is does this initial demand need to also be certified mailed as well? From the gov website sounds like only the Eviction notice does.

Another question, do I have to wait a certain period between posting the demand for rent onto then the eviction? It's not specific. The eviction notice just asks for the date I posted the first bit. Curious if any time frame must be waited.

Thanks in advance --73.249.xxx.xxx

Hopefully a NH landlord will help to clarify but in my lease rent is due on or before the first -without demand-, this shifts the burden of timely delivery to the tenant rather than chase after monies due, I have a LL friend who has his due date 3 days before the 1st (settles the months with different days) and have observed him in court before the large daily caseload.

I have not altered my lease to this change as most my tenants are student prepaid 8 months or more. --76.188.xxx.xx

My lease it's due 1st, and late after 5th. The demand for rent I speak of is a legal doc that must go out before a pay or Quit can go out. --73.249.xxx.xxx

Why not just use a process server if you're uncertain? A constable or whoever can post for you and there's no argument regarding service. $40-$50 insurance. --50.32.xxx.xx

From my understanding of demand letters, you can put any time span for payment that you desire. Courts usually recommend 10/15 days. --174.59.xxx.xx

MB,

I don't know about NH.

But I suggest you check with an atty about adding a lease clause WAIVER OF NOTICE. Basically it says the lease is the resident's notice that rent is due every month and no additional notice required.

You can post the door or serve in hand both the demand for rent and the eviction notice at the same time. If you don't do the paperwork correctly the judge will make you start over again. You can download the forms from the NH court website. There are small things like counting the days correctly, filling out forms for names on the lease and "all other occupants" that can trip you up. If you haven't done one before, you might consider hiring it out to learn the process. Our landlord group just spent 4 sessions on this and we all learned things we didn't know. --76.89.xx.xxx

I 2nd what Still learning says. when counting the 7 days on the eviction notice use eight or nine days - the day you post notice on door does not count . If they are not out on the day in the notice then you take copies of those 2 forms to courthouse along with about ~~$125. Tell them NOT to mail it to you and that you will pick it up when ready. That form you take to Sheriff ( not police) (~~$40)and they go to the home to post the date of court for your writ of possession - Law says court must be within 10 days- usually you can have them out around 20 days if you post immediately on the 1st. --24.34.xx.xxx

The reason for certified mail is to prove you sent something. Since you are required to send the item, it would seem necessary to be able to prove you sent it eh? I always send serious notices three ways: certified mail, regular mail and posted on the tenant's door. --73.33.xxx.xxx

the process in "Live Free or Die" NH does not require or need certified mail as an affidavit of time and place of posting is at the bottom of the Demand and also eviction form and is all the courts require.- the best part in NH is when SHERIFF service notifies them of the date of court. If you are vigilant that is around day 9-10. Judges here are real people and simply ask tenant - " did you pay rent? - if not - move! We are not liberal socialist compounds like NY, NJ, CA IL and others where the inmates run the prison.... so to say --24.34.xx.xxx

If you post the door, take a photo. Not required but not a bad idea to do. Maybe nhsailmaker can explain better. On one of the forms you do NOT want to check the box for additional amount owed. Only ask for rent. You can take them to small claims after but checking the box opens it up for countersuit. --76.89.xx.xxx

Checking the box for other monies due. ...... If you have done your landlord job correctly ( dont wait - start the process immediately) there will not be any past due rents to collect so leave box empty as advised. DO NOT add the money due from the tenant for all the filing and service fees - the court automatically does that for you. --24.34.xx.xxx
