Kansas 7 Day Notice to Vacate
A Kansas 7 Day Notice to Vacate is an official form used by either party to terminate a week-to-week lease. This notice may also be used for tenants with no written lease that pay rent weekly. There is no option to continue the arrangement and the tenancy will end within seven (7) calendar days.
Kansas 30 Day Notice to Vacate
A Kansas 30 Day Notice to Vacate is an official lease termination letter designed to terminate a rental agreement, including a month-to-month or year-to-year lease. This notice may also be used for tenants that do not have a written lease that pay rent monthly or for tenants with an expired lease. The letter must be provided to either party at least thirty (30) calendar days prior to the end date specified or before the expiration of the lease.
How to Write a Lease Termination Notice in Kansas
For a lease termination notice to be legally compliant:
- State who the legal letter is addressed to (use full name of the receiving party).
- Include the termination date of the lease or tenancy.
- Fill in the full address of the rental premises.
- For tenants, provide your new address and an updated phone number.
- Sign the notice and print your name.
- For landlords, include contact information, such as address and phone number.

Without this information on the lease termination notice, a judge may not be able to proceed with legal action.
How to Calculate Expiration Date in Kansas
A lease termination letter takes effect the day after it is served. Lease termination letters must be delivered at least the legally required number of calendar days in advance of the termination date. For example, with a month-to-month lease, to terminate the tenancy on June 30th, the letter must be served by either party before June 1st.
If the last day of the notice period falls on a weekend or legal holiday, then the notice period will not officially expire until the end of the following judicial day (a day when the courthouse is open).
How to Serve a Lease Termination Notice in Kansas
A landlord or a tenant may deliver lease termination notices in Kansas using any of the below acceptable methods:
- Handing the notice to the tenant in person;
- Handing the notice to a person of suitable age and discretion at the property AND mailing the notice by registered or certified mail with a return receipt;
- Posting the notice in a conspicuous place at the premises, such as the entry door, AND mailing the notice by registered or certified mail with a return receipt.
When sending the notice by registered or certified mail, add two (2) calendar days to the notice period to account for variability in post office delivery times.
