A Maine month-to-month lease agreement is a rental contract between a landlord and tenant with no fixed end-date and flexibility that allows either party to terminate the agreement with proper notice. A month-to-month lease is a type of periodic tenancy that renews on a monthly basis as long as the tenant pays rent on time and adheres to the other terms and conditions of the agreement.

A monthly lease is commonly applied at the end of a standard 1-year residential lease to continue the rental arrangement between the parties without extending the contract for another full year. In fact, standard leases will often include a provision declaring that the lease will automatically turn into a month-to-month lease at the end of the term; if they do not, it’s beneficial to execute this month-to-month lease agreement to hold both parties accountable for their duties and obligations to each other.

Notice for terminating (§ 6002) – Thirty (30) Days
