I am a renter. Due to a fire which started in the basement

Resolved Question:

I am a renter. Due to a fire which started in the basement and no fault of mine , had to vacate the property mid month. Am I entitled to a refund of the last 2 weeks rent already paid as well as the security deposit/last months rent paid initially? This was an involuntary and unexpected move and has been a great expense for me. I did not have renters insurance BUT I do now ! I live in Nashua, NH

Yes, if the tenancy is ended due to impossibility of occupancy, the monies should be returned unless the landlord can place you in alternate suitable housing.
