The Kentucky general notice to quit should only be used for evictions in counties that have not adopted the Uniform Residential Landlord and Tenant Act (see list of URLTA approved counties). Furthermore, this notice shall only be used if the tenancy is governed by a written lease and the lease contains eviction notice provisions. The landlord may supply the tenant with the notice to quit when the tenant breaches a provision of the lease (e.g., non-payment of rent, material damage, excessive noise). A notice period shall be given to the tenant in which they must vacate (this period must correspond with the lease requirements). If the tenant continues to occupy the premises after the notice period expires, the landlord can attempt to evict the tenant by filing a complaint with the local district court.
If the lease does not contain any lease termination provisions, or if there is no written lease, the landlord should serve the tenant with a 1-Month Notice to Quit.
