A Kansas notice to enter notifies a tenant that their landlord will be entering their unit. By law, landlords must give their tenants “reasonable notice” before entering their residence, which is usually at least 24 hours. The notice provides the landlord’s contact information and outlines the details of the visit, including its purpose, date, and time. A notice to enter allows clear communication and helps to maintain a healthy landlord-tenant relationship.
Landlords are within their rights to enter the rental property so long as they give the tenant “reasonable” notice. They also have to choose “reasonable” hours, and should only access the property for the following purposes:
- Performing necessary or agreed decorations, repairs, alterations, or improvements
- Providing necessary or agreed services
- Inspecting the property
- Showing the unit to prospective buyers, tenants, contractors, etc.
Statute: § 58-2557
Right to Enter
A landlord has the right to enter a unit without prior notification if a tenant has been absent for over thirty days or if the rent payments are at least ten days past due and the premises appear abandoned (§ 58-2565(b)).
