Kansas 30 Day Notice To Quit

Last Updated: March 29, 2024 by Roberto Valenzuela

Kansas 30 Day Notice To Quit begins eviction against a tenant for an “incurable” violation of the lease; in other words, one which doesn’t allow for corrective action, such as a repeat lease violation during the tenancy. The non-terminating party must receive notice at least thirty (30) calendar days before the date of termination.

When To Use a Kansas 30 Day Notice To Quit

A Kansas 30 Day Notice To Quit begins the eviction process when the tenant has repeated the same or substantially similar lease violation during the term of the lease.

First-time lease violations must use the 30 Day Notice To Comply or Vacate instead.

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 30 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
  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 30 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 may extend 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.
