Resolving repair issues under the lease:
Under a lease agreement, disputes will occur about the condition of the property or needed repairs. Repairs to heating system, water source, and dangerous conditions are essential to the tenant.
Return or withholding of tenant security deposit
At the end of a lease, the security deposit less any damages must be returned to the tenant. Disputes can arise when the money is not returned or when the cause or cost of damage is disputed.
Monadnock Region Eviction:
Evictions, removing the tenant from the property, can arise when the tenant over stays the lease or when the tenant is not fulfilling their duties under the lease agreement- like paying rent. There is a specific process under New Hampshire law that landlords must follow to ensure success in these actions.
Breach of lease by Landlord or Tenant
The landlord or the tenant may breach the provisions of the lease giving the other party a right to remedies for the breach. Beaulac Law can help you determine your options and the best course of action to take in these situations.
