The Kentucky 7-day notice to quit informs a tenant that they haven’t paid rent and that they must either pay their landlord or vacate the premises. If the tenant delivers payment to the landlord within seven (7) days after receiving the notice, they may retain their tenancy and continue to occupy the dwelling. Should the tenant neither pay rent nor vacate within the seven (7) day period, the landlord may terminate their tenancy and file for eviction with the court.
This notice is designed for use in counties that have adopted the Uniform Residential Landlord Tenant Act (URLTA). Different laws apply in outside jurisdictions. Before attempting to terminate a lease, landlords should contact their district court to see if the property is located in a county that supports the URLTA.
