FILING AN EVICTION - KENTUCKY

Withholding your rent can be considered nonpayment and may subject you to eviction. If you fail to pay rent on time or break any rules of the landlord or provision of the lease, the Kentucky landlord can go to court and may get an eviction notice.

KENTUCKY EVICTION  NOTICE

THIRTY DAY NOTICE: The landlord must give you notice 30 DAYS  that they want you to vacate (move out) prior to the SUMMONS AND COMPLAINT BEING DELIVERED. (Most Cases this is the rule)

The landlord must inform you first of this intention. They may give notice by 

  • Giving the notice to you
  • Giving it to any adult who lives in your home
  • Leaving it on your door.

For all states, we suggest the landlord also mail the notice certified and regular US Mail to the tenant.

If you receive an eviction notice, consult an attorney. You may go to court and explain your situation. If you have not lived up to the lease and or have not paid your rent on time, you probably will not be allowed to remain in the apartment or home. The landlord cannot, however, remove your possessions without a court order.

Kentucky courts are able to stop an eviction (if your rent is $2400 per month or less) for up to three months or longer if requested by the service member whose ability to pay rent has been materially affected by the active duty service.

KENTUCKY WARRANT OF POSSESSION

If the Kentucky Tenant loses, the judge will make an eviction order. 
The TENANT has 7 days to move out or fight (appeal) the judge's decision.

If you do not move out, your landlord can have the sheriff go to your home to make you leave. 
Your landlord cannot make you leave unless the sheriff is there.

If a Kentucky Landlords wins the Eviction, the Judge signs a "set-out" Warrant. The Landlord and the Sheriff will agree on a date to have the Tenants property put outside the building. The "set-out" Warrant is hand delivered to the Tenant by the Sheriffs Deputies, or posted on the door. At the designated time the Landlords moving crew and Sheriffs Deputies will meet to evict the renters. A Kentucky landlord can then go to Small Claims Court and attempt to recover back rent .
