State Specific Question About: KENTUCKY (KY)

This is my first time posting and evicting a tenant. I just did the forcible detainer and have a court date. The question I have is if I state in my lease A notice period of seven days for the detainer do I have to wait 30 days. --173.242.xxx.xx

It all depends on what your state law says. You cannot deviate from the law with a lease clause. --66.177.xxx.xxx

I know this much: I don't know how YOUR court operates.

I HIGHLY suggest 2 things:

1. Find a local landlord who has court experience and ask for advice. Your local assoc is great for this.

Also, judges do what htey want, NOT necessarily following the letter of the law. You need first hand, local info.

2. GO VISIT the court and observe NOW, not the day before your hearing. Call the court office, tel the clerk you are new and want to observe. Ask for a good time. Watch and listen. Judges remember and love LLs who take time to learn. It puts you in a good light before your case is heard.

3. Ok, 3rd thing...nobody wins in court. (except the atty - he gets paid by you!) ANYTHING can happen in court: delays, surprises, lose... Best solution is to work something out with the res: Cash for Keys is cheaper than court; help him move; pay the deposit on his new place; these all expire if it goes to court.

Keep us posted!

Had court for forcible detainer the only words I had to say were yes sir.The Judge gave them 7 days to leave and the women was heavy pregnant about to pop! Yes you are correct it is cheaper to pay them to go.I think what we will do now is send an eviction notice after one week of being late. Then if they pay in full in a reasonable amount of time we will cancel eviction. If they don't pay in full just let the eviction go to 30 days so we can file forcible detainer. I have read in Kentucky it can be as little as 7 days instead of 30 as long as it is listed in the lease. I'm having trouble finding the krs law that says that. Thank you I will start using this Q and A site --63.97.xxx.xxx
