I got a 3-day statutory notice today and need to know what the landlord-tenant act stipulates about Lawrence, KS.

Do I have 30 days on a year lease? 14? I can't find the appropriate info on the web.

Thanks in advance.

I believe in Lawrence the "human relations department", subdivision of the city's legal department, handle landlord related matters.

However....if you are being evicted for failure to pay rent, I believe 3 days is pretty standard. If the reason for the eviction is for something beyond your control--the landlord needs to make major repairs or intends to sell, for example--they have to give you more notice, usually 90 days.

If you are being evicted for 'retaliatory action'--retaliation for reporting code violations or for past late payments, you should be protected. The Human Relations Department should be direct you to helpful resources if they are unable to do so themselves. If you are a student, you might inquire about a student pro bono lawyer. They used to have one in the student union who primarily handled landlord-tenant disputes at no cost to students.

When you go seeking professional legal advice, as you should, take a copy of your lease with you!
