The Kentucky fifteen (15) day notice to quit or cure, per § 383.660, is to be served to tenants that have breached the lease agreement (committed a lease violation). The notice states that the tenant must either cure (aka fix) the violation(s), or vacate the rental unit within fifteen (15) days. The landlord must post the notice on the front door of the rental unit, or personally deliver the notice to the tenant. If the tenant does not comply with the notice, the landlord can file a forcible detainer complaint (i.e. eviction lawsuit) at the district court of the county where the rental property is located in.
