The Kansas termination lease letter form provides the means for a tenant or landlord wishing to terminate a month-to-month lease. This is a very important document as it will satisfy a legal requirement when terminating such an agreement. The 2006 Kansas Code Chapter 58, Article 25 places responsibility of giving thirty days’ notice when terminating a month-to-month lease on whichever party wishing to end this agreement.
– Landlord or tenant is required to grant at least thirty (30) days’ notice (minimum).
Terminating a month-to-month agreement suddenly is very likely to cause some problems for the remaining party. For example, a landlord will have to find a tenant and this can be a time consuming process during which no income from the residence will be generated. Similarly, a tenant who has had their month-to-month agreement terminated will have to find a new place to live. This, in and of itself, may be considered a daunting task without the consideration of moving expenses factored in. The thirty-day notice seeks to prevent the overwhelming financial stress of having to succeed at any of these tasks without having the time to do so.
It is worth mentioning that ending a lease favorably will work for everyone involved. Thus, while thirty days is required, it may be a good idea to give as much notice as possible or perhaps even give a warning that a consideration to end the agreement is being made. This will afford the remaining party a fairly good chance of a relatively smooth transition.
