What is the name of your state? New Hampshire
New Hampshire Supreme Court rule Wednesday that a landlord could NOT have a tenant move just because it was the end of their lease-you need just cause. What's the use in having a lease expire than??? Just frustrated and venting!

Yes, just purchased in June and already having to evict tenant for non-payment of rent. While in court was able to hear alot of crap other landlords are dealing with, now hearing about NH Supreme court ruling just makes me want to sell & run!

News paper article from Thurs Sept 8th, explaining the Supreme Court ruling.

Non-payment of rent is just cause.

From the article you provided:

Justice Linda S. Dalianis, who wrote yesterday's opinion, listed the reasons under state law for which landlords may evict tenants:

Non-payment of rent
, substantial damage to the premises, failure of the tenant to comply with a material term of the lease, behavior that adversely affects other tenants. Or, lastly, "other good cause."

Although the court has placed one more hurdle in front of landlords, the article points out these key things:

"The decision leaves all the room in the world for landlords to not renew a lease and to evict a tenant following expiration of lease provided there is a legitimate reason for doing so," he said.

He said legitimate reasons include the intent to sell an apartment, renovate it or upgrade it. A landlord can also raise the rent beyond the tenant's means


In other words, just add $500 to the normal monthy payment when it switches from a yearlong to month to month lease. If they pay, then what's the problem?
