Maine 7 Day Notice to Quit or Cure | Non-Compliance

The Maine seven (7) day notice to quit or comply, following Title 14, §6002§6025, is used to notify tenants who are in breach of their lease agreement that they have seven (7) days to either fix (i.e. “cure”) their violation(s) or move out of the rental property. If the tenant fails to comply with the notice within the seven day period, then landlord can file a forcible entry/detainer complaint (aka eviction lawsuit).

How to Write

Step 1 – Print out the form. Put the “date of notice” at the top of the form. Enter the address of the rental property/unit (including the county where it’s located). In the “Attention” field, put the name(s) of the tenant(s).

Step 2 – Provide a description of the lease violation(s).

Note: If you need more room to provide an accurate description, attach another page to the notice.

Step 3 – Sign your name, and then provide a return address and contact phone number. Select the service/delivery method at the bottom of the notice.

Note: Make several copies of the completed notice. If you have to file an eviction lawsuit, the court will require several copies during the various filing processes.
