The Maine thirty (30) day lease termination letter, according to Title 14 §6002, is used by a landlord to inform a month-to-month or “at-will” tenant of the landlord’s intention to terminate the lease agreement. The notice provides the tenant with thirty (30) days to vacate the rental unit. Failure of the tenant to move out within thirty (30) days provides the landlord with the right to file an eviction lawsuit (otherwise known as a “forcible entry and detainer complaint”).
