Can a Tenant Change the Locks in Kentucky?

A tenant in Kentucky may be able to change their own locks without permission because the state’s current landlord-tenant laws do not expressly forbid them from doing so. However, landlords in Kentucky are expressly forbidden from taking the same action without permission, even in instances where a tenant is late on rent payments. These lockouts are a serious offense that may result in penalties for the offending landlord.
