Last Updated: November 21, 2022 by Marnie Snyder

Kansas 30 Day Notice to Comply or Vacate is an eviction letter delivered to the tenant for a curable lease violation. The tenant has the right to correct the breach within 14 calendar days, otherwise the tenant must move out by the expiration of the 30 calendar day notice period.

When to Use a Kansas 30 Day Notice to Comply or Vacate

In Kansas, for the first lease violation of a similar nature, use a 30 Day Notice to Comply or Vacate to begin the eviction process if the tenant:

  • Failed to comply with health/safety rules.
  • Damaged the rental unit.
  • Violated the lease with too many occupants residing at the premises.
  • Disturbed the peace and enjoyment of other persons.
  • Violated any other terms of the lease.

During the term of the lease, if the tenant repeated the same or a similar lease violation, use the 30 Day Notice to Quit instead.

If none of the above are true, use one of the below forms to evict a tenant:

  • 3 Day Notice to Quit – If the tenant has resided at the premises for less than three (3) months and is late on rent (starting the day after it’s due), either in part or in full.
  • 10 Day Notice to Quit –  If the tenant has resided at the premises for three (3) months or longer and is late on rent (starting the day after it’s due), either in part or in full.
  • 30 Day Notice to Quit – If the tenant committed substantially the same breach or a similar breach of the lease during the lease term.
  • 30 Day Notice to Vacate – If the tenant or the landlord is ending a monthly or yearly lease. This letter may also be used for tenants with no written lease that pay rent monthly or for tenants with an expired lease.
