The Maine thirty (30) day notice to quit is used by a landlord to inform a month-to-month tenant (or “at-will tenant”) of the landlord’s intention to terminate the rental agreement without cause. The notice to quit may also be used by the tenant to terminate their tenancy. Upon service of the notice by either party, the tenant will have a thirty (30) days to vacate the rental unit and remove their personal property. 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”).
