Last Updated: November 21, 2022 by Marnie Snyder

Kansas 30 Day Notice to Quit is a legal eviction document delivered to the tenant for an incurable breach, such as a repeat lease violation during the tenancy. There is no option to cure and the tenant must move out of the premises within thirty (30) calendar days.

When to Use a Kansas 30 Day Notice to Quit

Use a 30 Day Notice to Quit to begin the eviction process in Kansas if the tenant committed more than one (1) lease violation of the same or a similar nature during the lease term.

If the lease violation is the tenant’s first breach of the same or a similar nature, use the 30 Day Notice to Comply or Vacate instead.

If the above is not 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 Comply or Vacate – If the tenant failed to comply with health/safety rules, violated rules with too many occupants at the premises or any other violations of the lease.
  • 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.
