Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear about your granddaughter's situation.
Under Maine law, someone who commits domestic violence against a tenant is liable for the tenant's rent, moving expenses, and attorney's fees. Title 14, Section 6010. If your granddaughter moves out, her husband is liable for everything. She will need to get a police report or restraining order so there is evidence of the domestic violence to show the landlord.
