How Long Can a Residential Lease Be in Maine?

This question is about Maine Residential Lease Agreement

The standard duration of a residential lease in Maine is one (1) year. Verbal leases are permitted, but a lease formed verbally is considered a ‘tenancy at will’.

A tenancy at will doesn’t afford the same protections as a written lease. It is recommended that all leases, regardless of duration, be in writing.
