Hi all I have an maine notice to quit template I paid for from a lawyer to share. I have a few questions on how to fill it out and best way to evict a tenant.

Example:

NOTICE TO QUIT

(EVICTION NOTICE-SEVEN (7) DAY NOTICE OF TERMINATION)

TO:         _____________________
        _____________________
        _____________________


I hereby notify and require you to quit and deliver up to me, ___??#1???________ (hereinafter the “Landlord”), at the expiration of seven (7) days from the date this Notice is delivered to you, the possession of the following described premises, now occupied by you and belonging to the Landlord, to wit: ______??????#2?????_____________________________________________.

        This Notice is given to you in compliance with Maine state law, specifically, 14 M.R.S.A. §§ 6001 et. seq. At the expiration of this 7-day period, your tenancy is terminated due to the forfeiture of your Agreement term for the following reasons:

1. Your monthly rent is $_______________. As of the date of this notice, you are in arrears in the amount of _________________.

2.___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________.

        If you pay the amount of rent due as of the date of this Notice ($___________) before this Notice expires, then this Notice as it applies to rent arrearage is void.

        After this Notice expires, if you pay all rental arrears, all rent due as of the date of payment and any filing fees and service of process fees actually paid by the landlord before the writ of possession issues at the completion of the eviction process, then your tenancy will be reinstated.

        You are advised that this Notice is given to you for the purpose of terminating your tenancy under the provisions of the Maine Entry and Detainer Statute, to wit: 14 M.R.S.A. § 6001, et seq. which covers the termination of tenancies in the State of Maine.

Dated: August ___, 2017                         __________                                        

STATE OF MAINE
York, ss.

        I hereby certify that on the                 day of August, 2017, I made service of the within Notice to Quit upon the lessee(s) by delivering a copy of this Notice to Quit in hand to __________________________________.

                               

                                                                                ______

#1 is your name (or company name if operating as such).

#2 should be the address of the property. Delivering the property usually includes keys and at that point transfers possession from tenant to landlord.

there is a problem with your notice.please be advised to add the statement to your notice, "You have the right to contest in court."
If you do not add that and the person does not show,two things can result. If they do not have a lawyer or pine tree legal the judge constitutes sufficient grounds to set aside any default judgment entered against the tenant for failure to appear at the court hearing.And if your tenant has the nightmare pine tree legal or any other legal representation, the lawyer may advise for the tenant to not show and the lawyer representing them shows and argues that and will win and force you to start it all over again.

it is within the second paragraph. Close all loopholes on the tenant, TO GET THE FREELOADER OUT!
