The Kentucky thirty (30) day notice to quit, as provided via § 383.695, can only be served to month-to-month tenants or other forms of “at-will” tenancies (verbal contract, etc.). The notice simply informs the tenant that they have thirty (30) days to vacate the premises of the rental unit. If the tenant does not move out within the 30 day notice period, the landlord has the legal right to file an action for eviction (aka “forcible detainer”) at the district court of the county where the rental property is located in.
Note: The notice should also be served to a landlord by a tenant, if the tenant is planning on terminating the lease agreement and moving out.
