The Kentucky seven (7) day notice to quit is an official notice stating that a tenant who has fallen behind on rent must vacate the premises or face possible legal action should they fail to pay the balance owed. The tenant is given seven (7) days to come up with the funds or else they will have to move out. Nevertheless, if the tenant decides to leave the property, they are still obligated to pay the back-rent to the landlord.

Note that evictions in Kentucky are heavily dictated by local jurisdictions, which may or may not institute different notice periods and manners in which to serve tenants. It is strongly recommended to double-check with a local government entity for laws and ordinances pertaining to said jurisdiction.
