The Kentucky thirty (30) day notice to quit is a document used by landlords and tenants to terminate a month-to-month (a.k.a. periodic) tenancy. The notice informs either party that the tenant shall vacate the leased property and remove their belongings within thirty (30) days. No cause for termination is required for this type of notice to quit. Therefore, the landlord or tenant need not specify any reason for eviction within the notice. The letter will need to be delivered at least thirty (30) days before the start of the subsequent rental date. If the individual fails to vacate after thirty (30) days, the landlord can seek an eviction by filing a Forcible Detainer lawsuit with the district court.
Note: Use of this notice is reserved for properties located in counties that have adopted the Uniform Residential Landlord and Tenant Act (see URLTA county list).
