New Hampshire Statutes

"There is no New Hampshire statute limiting how much a landlord can raise the rent. If your landlord tries to raise your rent by an unreasonable amount, there is a legal argument that such an increase is not enforceable by a court. It is very difficult to convince a court that an increase is so large that it is unconscionable (unreasonable). Talk to a lawyer before trying to take this position in court." NH Legal Aid
