Can a Tenant Change the Locks in Kansas?

Tenants in Kansas may be able to change their own locks simply because the state’s current landlord-tenant laws do not expressly prohibit it. However, Kansas landlords are not allowed to take the same action without their tenant’s permission under the same laws. Doing so may result in an illegal lockout, which in turn may cause a landlord to become liable for damages associated with that tenancy interruption.
