When marking and user as inactive all his packages should be automatically orphaned.

Another option but more complicated would be to check the status of the previous maintainer when adopting and remove his name from maintainers list. Same when sending notifications.

For the second solution the argument is to find easier what packages he maintained.
This task depends upon
