Rental Referral Agencies

A "rental referral agency" is a business that will, for a fee, assist people who are searching for a place to rent by providing listings of available rental units. All rental agencies operating in New Hampshire must post a surety bond with the New Hampshire Attorney General's Office.

  • Rental referral agencies may not charge more than $10 for their services unless a property is obtained by the prospective tenant through the direct services of the agency.
  • A contract between the agency and the consumer-client must be signed by both parties before any deposit or fee is paid.
  • The agency cannot state or imply that any rental property is available unless its availability has been verified within the previous 48 hours.

If you have any problems with a rental referral agency, contact New Hampshire's Consumer Protection and Antitrust Bureau at 603-271-3641 or 1-888-468-4454.
