In Maine, a residential lease can only be written for two years max.

As a Property Manager, I heavily discourage either side from signing an initial lease for two years. If either side is unhappy with the other it is far easier to get out after one year rather then be mad at each other for two or even wind up in court.

If a one year lease works out for both parties, additional leases can be written after that or even move to a month-to-month situation.

Do you have a specific question that you are asking?

I would not limit your search to "private parties".... in the York area there are very few for sale by owners, and don't be misled that you may get a better price without a Realtor. If you do have a buyer broker, their responsibility is to represent your best interest, including financially.
I personally purchased a lot just over a year ago, for a great price, and am now building an investment property on it.......was listed with an agency but had a few "issues" which I was able to get answers from the town and resolve, and ultimately was a more desireable buildable piece of land.
Best of luck!
