New Hampshire Legal Assistance (NHLA) and 603 Legal Aid offered free online help sessions for tenants facing eviction.
During these Eviction Clinics, legal aid attorneys and paralegals explained tenants’ rights during an eviction and answered questions. They did not provide legal advice for specific cases at the clinics.
The sessions were recorded and are available on NHLA’s YouTube channel
NEW Document-creation tool:
603 Legal Aid developed a tool for this website that will create a document for you. After you answer a set of questions, an appropriate document is created based on your answers. You can download or e-mail your final document with an instruction sheet that tells you what to do next and gives you links to more information about your legal issue.
Currently, the documents you can create are:
- a letter to a debt collector asking them to stop contacting you,
- a letter to a prior landlord asking them to return your security deposit, and
- a letter to a debt collector or creditor telling them you are judgment proof.
- an Appearance form for a tenant who is being evictied.
- an Answer and Request for Continuance for a tenant who is being evicted because they withheld rent.
Use the links above to create your documents.
