Kansas 3 Day Notice To Quit

Last Updated: March 29, 2024 by Roberto Valenzuela

Kansas 3 Day Notice To Quit is a letter that complies with state legal requirements to begin eviction against a tenant for nonpayment of rent, in tenancies under (3) months. The tenant must pay the balance due or move out within three (3) calendar days of receiving notice.

When To Use a Kansas 3 Day Notice To Quit

A Kansas 3 Day Notice To Quit begins the eviction process when the tenant has resided on the premises for fewer than three (3) months and is late on rent. A landlord may deliver this notice when any portion of the rent remains unpaid, beginning the day after it’s normally due.

Some types of Kansas lease termination notice may allow different reasons for termination, or different notice periods. This may also apply to an eviction notice issued because of a lease or legal violation.

How To Write a Kansas 3 Day Notice To Quit

To help ensure the legal compliance of a Notice To Quit:

  1. Use the full name of the receiving parties, and address of record, if known
  2. Specify the basis upon which the tenancy will terminate, and the payment necessary to avoid termination
  3. Specify the termination date of the lease or tenancy
  4. Fill in the full address of the rental premises
  5. Provide updated/current address and phone number information
  6. Print name and sign the notice
  7. Complete the certificate of service by indicating the date and method of notice delivery, along with printed name and signature

It is easy to lose an otherwise justified legal action because of improper notice. Check carefully to ensure enough time after notice is delivered, not when it’s sent.

How To Serve a Kansas 3 Day Notice To Quit

Kansas landlords may deliver a Notice To Quit using any of the following methods:

    1. Hand delivery to the tenant
    2. Hand delivery to a person at least age 12 on the premises who can accept the notice on behalf of the tenant
    3. Delivery by registered or certified mail, to be proven by return receipt
    4. Only if no one can be found at the premises: Posting at a conspicuous place on the premises, such as the entry door

    Mailed notice extends a notice period by two (2) calendar days.

    In almost all cases, notice is legally served when it is received by the other party, NOT when it’s sent. Check specified date of termination carefully to ensure compliance with the legal requirements for a notice period.
