  1. List tenants’ full names;
  2. List full address;
  3. Include grounds for eviction;
  4. Calculate and include termination date;
  5. Include date notice served;
  6. The landlord’s signature and printed name; and
  7. The landlord’s address and telephone number.

Without this information on the notice, a judge may not be able to proceed with an eviction proceeding and the landlord’s case may be dismissed.

How to Calculate Expiration Date in Kansas

An eviction notice in Kansas for nonpayment of rent takes effect the same day it is delivered in person or posted at the premises. All other eviction notices for a breach of the lease take effect the day after the notice is served.

All calendar days are counted during the notice period. The last day is included in the notice period unless it falls on a weekend or legal holiday, then the notice will not officially expire until the end of the next judicial day (not counting weekends or legal holidays).
