CONCORD – Last week, SB 126, Senator Rebecca Perkins Kwoka’s (D-Portsmouth) bill to make adjustments to landlord tenant law, giving more flexibility to tenants who may be struggling to pay their rent, was signed into law.
Senator Rebecca Perkins Kwoka (D-Portsmouth) issued the following statement in response:
“Particularly now as we approach the end of the federal eviction moratorium, it is critical that we take action to keep our friends and neighbors in their homes in a way that is most fair to all. SB 126 creates a critical guardrail for tenants struggling to pay their rent, protects landlords’ incomes, and will help to ensure situations don’t hit a crisis point before they can be remedied. I am proud to have sponsored this legislation and of the bipartisan work that led to the Governor’s signature.”
