A month to month lease agreement in the state of Maine is a legal contract that specifies the terms of a property or apartment lease. This agreement will detail the expectations from the landlord and tenant and will act as a guide to how the tenant/landlord relationship will be handled. For example, a month to month lease agreement will state that the lease is valid for a period of one month, and will lay out terms of tenancy. These terms will include rent payments, rules of occupancy, rent due dates, late fees, and other provisions such as parking, and guest policies. This type of agreement will renew automatically at the beginning of each month if not canceled by the landlord or the tenant and will continue to renew until one of the parties terminates the agreement.
