Maine Rental Lease Agreements

Maine rental agreements are legal contracts that allow property owners to rent a residential unit (home, apartment, mobile home, etc.) on a monthly or yearly basis. The two (2)parties are typically a landlord (lessor) and tenant (sublessee) and in some cases, the lessor will have representation in the form of a management company or real estate agent that will have the authorization to sign on his or her behalf. Once the contract is signed by the lessor and lessee the form is legally binding until the term is complete.
