I currently have a tenant who has not re-signed/updated his lease (should have done so in June) and has not fully paid his rent for the month of October (still owes $250) and has not paid Novembers rent either. ($1000)
I'm fully aware of the typical eviction process in the state of NH but what rights do I have at this point in a "lock-out"/kicking him out since he does not have a signed/renewed lease?

No, I don't believe so. He is a "holdover" tenant. Look at NH's laws on holdover tenants, but I think you still have to evict them. I could be wrong, of course.

None what you seek does not exist in any state.

Once the lease wasn't renewed and you basically did nothing about that, the tenant automatically went to a month to month agreement under the same terms and conditions of the original lease. You should find the answers to your questions here:

New Hampshire Landlord Tenant Law

And no, you cannot lock him out but must abide by the laws.

Anyone want to start a pool for what brand of big screen TV he's getting?

Then follow them. You have a M2M tenant at this point.

None whatsoever.
Start with the "pay or quit".

Quote:
since he does not have a signed/renewed lease?
He is under no obligation to renew his lease.

Many LL's prefer to have tenants "roll over" into a M2M tenancy after the initial lease period expires;
the T's still have to pay rent though.
