The Kentucky 14-day notice to quit is an eviction letter that is given to tenants who have violated the terms of their rental agreement. This letter informs the tenant of their violations and provides them with fourteen (14) days (not counting the date of delivery) to remedy the issues. Failure by the tenant to correct their violations within the notice period will result in termination of their rental agreement.
If the tenant commits substantially the same violation within six (6) months following receipt of an initial notice of non-compliance, the landlord may give a second (2nd) notice stating that the rental agreement will terminate in fourteen (14) days regardless of whether the violations are corrected.
This notice is designed to comply with the Uniform Residential Landlord-Tenant Act (URLTA). Certain counties in Kentucky have yet to adopt the URLTA and, as a result, have different eviction laws. Landlords should check with the district court to determine whether the URLTA applies in their county.
