A Kansas eviction notice form is a legal demand for a tenant to comply with the terms of the rental agreement or else move out of the premises. Kansas landlords may deliver an eviction notice because of unpaid rent, lease violations, or illegal activity on the rental property.

Kansas 3 Day Notice To Quit
A Kansas 3 Day Notice To Quit evicts a tenant for nonpayment of rent. In Kansas, a landlord can file this notice the day after rent is due, with no grace period for the tenant. The tenant must pay all past due rent or else move out within three (3) calendar days.
Kansas 30 Day Notice To Comply or Vacate
A Kansas 30 Day Notice To Comply or Vacate demands correction of a lease violation that is “curable,” i.e., the tenant may get a chance to fix the situation rather than be evicted. A curable lease violation might include failure to maintain health and safety on the rental property, interfering with the quiet enjoyment of neighbors, or refusal to allow lawful entry by the landlord.
The tenant must take appropriate corrective action, or else move out within thirty (30) calendar days of receiving notice.
Kansas 30 Day Notice To Quit
A Kansas 30 Day Notice To Quit evicts a tenant for repeating a lease violation during the lease term. Because it’s a repeat violation, the tenant isn’t given a chance to take corrective action, and must move out within thirty (30) calendar days of receiving notice.
Kansas 30 Day Notice To Vacate
A Kansas 30 Day Notice To Vacate terminates a rental agreement, including a month-to-month or year-to-year lease as well as an expired lease or a situation with no written lease where the tenant pays rent monthly. The non-terminating party must receive notice at least thirty (30) days before the date of termination.
How To Write an Eviction Notice in Kansas
To help ensure the legal compliance of an eviction notice:
- Use the tenant’s full name and address
- Specify the lease violation as well as any balance due
- Specify the date of termination
- Print name and sign the notice, including the landlord’s address of record
- Note 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 Calculate Expiration Date in Kansas
The “clock” for an eviction notice period starts “ticking” the day after the notice gets delivered (served). For example, to give at least 30 days of notice and begin court action as of June 30th, delivery of the eviction notice must be no later than May 31st.
There is one exception in Kansas. An eviction notice for nonpayment of rent takes effect the same day it is received.
In most jurisdictions, if the last day of a notice period is a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, the notice period continues to run until the end of the next day that is not a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday. This is called the “next judicial day;” in other words, the next day a courthouse is open.
How To Serve an Eviction Notice in Kansas
Kansas landlords may deliver an eviction notice using any of these methods:
- Hand delivery to the other party
- Hand delivery to a person of suitable age who can accept the notice on behalf of the tenant, PLUS delivery by registered or certified mail
- Posting at a conspicuous place on the premises, PLUS delivery by registered or certified mail
Mailed notice extends the notice period by two (2) calendar days, to account for variable delivery times.
