A Maine 7-day notice to quit for non-compliance is a legal form used by landlords to inform tenants of a breach in their lease agreement. It gives tenants seven days to rectify the issue or face eviction.
The notice must provide affirmative proof that a breach has occurred, such as causing damage to the property, permitting a nuisance, or engaging in domestic violence or stalking. If the lease is in writing, the notice must reference the specific terms and conditions that have been violated. Landlords may provide tenants with the option to remedy the violation to avoid eviction, but this is not required by law.
