Kansas 30 Day Notice To Vacate

Last Updated: March 29, 2024 by Roberto Valenzuela

A Kansas 30 Day Notice To Vacate is a letter that complies with state legal requirements to terminate a month-to-month or year-to-year lease. 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 Vacate

A Kansas 30 Day Notice To Vacate terminates the following types of tenancy:

  • A month-to-month or year-to-year lease
  • An expired lease
  • A rental with no written lease where the tenant pays rent on a monthly basis

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 Vacate

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

  1. Use the full name of the receiving parties, and address of record, if known
  2. Specify the termination date of the lease or tenancy
  3. Fill in the full address of the rental premises
  4. Provide updated/current address and phone number information
  5. Print name and sign the notice
  6. 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 Vacate

Kansas landlords and tenants may deliver a Notice To Vacate using any of the following methods:

    1. Hand delivery to the other party
    2. Hand delivery to the other party’s usual place of business or residence, as appropriate
    3. Hand delivery to a person at least age 12 on the property who can accept the notice on behalf of the other party
    4. Delivery by registered or certified mail, to be proven by return receipt
    5. Only if no person can be found on the property: Posting at a conspicuous place on the other party’s property, 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.
