The Maine residential lease agreement is the most popular type of rental contract in the State and the standard term of the agreement between the between a landlord and tenant is one (1) year. Once the contract has been signed by both parties (along with all required disclosures) it becomes legally binding to both landlord and tenant for the term stated. It is recommended that the landlord put all potential tenants through a screening process to ensure that they are being truthful about their income and employment. A background check may also be an option for higher risk candidates and the property owner/manager is allowed to charge a non-refundable fee for these checks.
