Can a Tenant Change the Locks in Maine?

Tenants in Maine cannot change their own locks unless they provide a new spare key to their landlord. Similarly, landlords in Maine cannot change their tenant’s locks without permission. In the landlord’s case, doing so without following proper procedures may result in an illegal lockout, for which the landlord may be compelled to pay damages.
