The lease itself - provided it has all elements of a legal contract - is binding. That said, in a situation like this I would speak to an attorney and provide detailed information so they may accurately advise you because there are some (very few) exceptions to the law.

I want to address another specific part of your question, even though quite some time has passed since it was posted, because the issue of deposits is one that is regulated by law in this state. In New Hampshire (and there are very few exceptions here) a landlord may charge a tenant one month's rent (first month) and a security deposit (not to exceed a month's worth of rent) when the lease agreement is initially created. Landlords may not charge additional money under the majority of circumstances. For example, in New Hampshire a landlord may not ask for the first month, last month, and security deposit up front. Additionally, a landlord may not ask for other deposits such as a pet deposit in addition to a security deposit equal to a month of rent and the first month of rent. If a landlord is asking for additional money, after a tenant already has a lease, I would advise contacting an attorney to find out if there are any exceptions to the law in New Hampshire that allow for that.

If you need any assistance or guidance concerning rentals or the rental process please feel free to contact me.

IF a landlord sells property, there should be no major events happening to you if you have a lease. Heirs and successors gives you some teeth if you are concerned of anything.

If you are being evicted because your new landlord wants to move into your abode, it is 30-60 days depending upon state. I had to do one of these to get into my place. It was a while ago.

If you do not have a lease, you should be talking to your local attorney about what rights you have.

Looks like time has come and gone on your question, wish I was around when you posted this. Anyway, you are not in a good position, but, you are not in a bad one either. IF you are current on your rent, and you have not done anything terrible in past, I would wait till told otherwise.

It cost a lot of money for a landlord to rent out an empty unit. Most of us have to clean, fix, and advertise. It cost us a lot of money to evict someone too. What landlords want to see are stable families that are going to be there, always.

I miss my family that was with me for over 15 years! Good people! But, if the new landlord say sign a lease, do it. For in the lease there is usually a clause that states 'to airs and successors' meaning the transfer of property going from one landlord to another will not interrupt your enjoyment to that abode you live in.

Coy Asbury answered:
You may take less right now on the sale, but if you are buying another home it 'should' make up for it. I think the determining factors are how quickly do you want the home to sell. The appraisal was a result of listings that were in your area. Also, your agent has access to the MLS, which will accurately show what homes have actually sold for. An active listing is hard to go by- they have not sold yet, and may not. ... more

Charlotte the PMI company has to approve the short sale, not the bank. The PMI company can choose to pay the loss and allow the short sale or can foreclose, pay the bank and then try and recoup their money by selling the asset. If they are refusing the short sale the price is lower than their allowed percentage off of the current market value. The buyer would need to pay closer to the market value. Most banks and pmi companies will counter these days though, not just deny it. Check with the negotiator to see what they will take. I have had great success with PMI companies in getting my short sales approved through daily communications. ... more

Matt Heisler answered:
It's a question for the folks you interviewed! They should be able to stand behind their conclusions. You say Agent(s), but is that two or three? I'm already skeptical of the agents you had, because if you were reviewing the units FOR SALE, as opposed to HAVE SOLD, I'd suggest you're looking at the wrong data. (For the record, listed property is not a comparable. Only sales are. Listed Property is good data, but much less so.).

Regardless of their methodology, they should be able to make you understand it. If you can't, find someone who does a better job of communicating with you.

Hi Paul,
In NH the deed, and mortgage are usually recorded within 24 hrs. But since the registry closes on week days by 4pm and you need to be there 15 min. ahead to get your deed recorded sometimes that doesn't happen. And if it's a Fri. then it may be Mon before the deed and mortgage get recorded. Most title companies have gap insurance so that there are no issues with this delay. But if there will be a delay and it is a small company or possibly a MA lawyer who is handling the closing sometimes the funds are not dispursed until everything is recorded. If there are no dispursements it is up to the seller to decide if they will give the keys over to the buyer or wait until the receive their funds. It can be frustrating but generally it all goes smoothly. ... more
