The Kansas thirty (30) day notice to quit, lawful through Statute 58-2570, is used for month-to-month tenancies. The notice informs the tenant that they have thirty (30) days to vacate the rental unit. If the tenant does not comply with the notice (i.e. fails to vacate or “quit”), then the landlord can file an eviction lawsuit. The notice can also be used by a tenant to inform their landlord of their intention to terminate the lease/rental agreement. The notice should be served personally, however it can also be sent via certified mail (a second copy should also be posted on the front door/window of the rental unit).
How to Write
Step 1 – Enter the current date at the top of the notice, and then fill in the address of the rental unit.
Step 2 – Put the name of the tenant(s) (or landlord) in the “To:” field. Enter the date of the lease/termination. If you are the tenant, provide a return address for the security deposit.
Step 3 – The “Proof of Service” section at the bottom must be filled out after the notice has been served. Select the service method that was used, enter the date of service, and then sign/print/date the form.
Note: Make several copies of the completed form in case the tenant does not comply with the notice and you have to file an eviction lawsuit. The court will require several copies of the notice in order to file the action for eviction.
