There is good information for tenants facing eviction in Maine available on the website for Pine Tree Legal -- a nonprofit that provides legal assistance to low-income Maine residents. You should begin by reviewing their website (www.ptla.org) as that outlines the steps a landlord must take before evicting you. In addition, assuming the facts as you describe to be true, you may be able to hold the property manager accountable for breach of an oral promise. Also, if the homeowners who are your landlord ACTUALLY signed the second lease, you can assert the terms of that lease in the Maine District Court when the landlord brings an eviction action against you.
