Kentucky 7 Day Notice to Pay or Quit

The Kentucky seven (7) day notice to pay or quit is an eviction letter served by the landlord on a tenant that has failed to pay the rent. The notice informs the individual that they have seven (7) days to either pay the owed amount or vacate the rental unit. Failure of the tenant to either pay the rent or move out within seven (7) days gives the landlord the right to file an eviction action (otherwise known as a “Forcible Detainer”) in court.

Note: This notice is to be used for evictions in districts ruled by the Uniform Residential Landlord and Tenant Act (see URLTA approved counties). Landlords with property located in a non-URLTA county must follow the lease requirements when evicting a tenant for non-payment of rent. If there is no lease, or if the lease does not contain any provisions regarding non-payment, the landlord must serve the tenant with a 1-Month Notice to Quit.
