New Hampshire extends special protections to tenants who are victims of domestic violence. Here are some of the domestic violence (DV) laws that apply to tenants:
- Landlord entitled to proof of DV status
- Landlord cannot terminate a victim of DV
- DV victim has the right to have the locks changed
- Landlord or court may bifurcate the lease, which means that the landlord may evict the abuser, but not the victim of the domestic violence.
