Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
As a matter of law, the landlord has to provide a habitable dwelling the meets all minimum safety and housing codes, but that is about it. There is no legal obligation under the law in NH for a landlord to provide for snow removal, but if they put that in the written lease, then they are contractually obligated to do so.
So you as a prospective tenant should find out who pays for the hot water, utilities, parking, snow removal, trash removal, and other costs before the lease is signed. If the landlord and tenant agree to change anything in the printed lease, the change should be made in writing and both tenant and landlord should put their initials beside the change.
Hello again, Did you have any further questions that I can help with?
Ok, that is definitely something you will have to think about considering how much snow normally falls.
Did you have any other questions?
If not, if you feel your original question and any related follow ups have been answered, I would very much appreciate a positive rating on the answer I have provided as that is the only way I receive credit for my work. If you have a new question the JustAnswer folks require that you start a new question page, but you can request me by putting "For Barrister" in the caption and they will get it to me.
