Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
As a general rule, if you are considered a "transient" resident, meaning that you will only be there for a few days, then you wouldn't be considered a "residential tenant" as that implies that you have the intent of making this your actual residence. So you are essentially in the same position as a hotel or motel guest and this would be considered a vacation or recreational rental.
So the term "short term residential" wouldn't really be legally accurate because normal landlord tenant laws don't apply to these types of rentals. Seen NH law:
NH Statutes 540:1-a Definitions.
IV. The term "tenant'' or "tenancy'' shall not include occupants or occupancy in the following places and the provisions of this chapter shall not apply to:
(a) Rooms in rooming or boarding houses which are rented to transient guests for fewer than 90 consecutive days. For purposes of this subparagraph, if the owner of the facility directs the occupant to move from one room to another in the same rooming or boarding house, or directs the occupant to move from one of the owner's rooming or boarding houses to another, the 90-day period for computing consecutive days of occupancy shall not be broken. Consecutive days of occupancy shall not include a voluntary move from one room to another if the move was made at the request of the occupant after the occupant has been notified of the exemption from tenancy under this subparagraph. Such request shall be in writing and shall include the following statement:
"I request a move from ________________ to _______________. I have received a copy of RSA 540:1-a, IV(a) and understand that any time I spent in the first room shall not apply toward the 90 consecutive days of occupancy required for tenancy under RSA 540.''
(b) Rooms in hotels, motels, inns, tourist homes and other dwellings rented for recreational or vacation use.
(c) Rooms in student dormitories, nursing homes, hospitals and any other facilities licensed under RSA 151 or certified under RSA 126-A, convents, monasteries, asylums, or group homes.
(d) A single-family home in which the occupant has no lease, which is the primary and usual residence of the owner.
(e) Residential real estate under RSA 540-B.
(f) Vacation or recreational rental units under RSA 540-C.
(g) Residential units leased by a member of a fraternal or social organization that provides student housing for a postsecondary institution in a structure owned and operated by the fraternal or social organization.
