(1) The person authorized to manage the premises; and
(2) an owner of the premises or a person authorized to act for and on behalf of the owner for the purpose of service and for the purpose of receiving and receipt of notices and demands.
Contact your local housing or zoning office to be sure your rental property complies with city and county requirements for inspections, rent control, occupancy limits, property codes, and zoning. Many cities and counties require inspections and registrations and have specific maintenance regulations.
- Authorized Agents Identification: The Landlord or any person authorized to enter into a Rental Agreement on the Landlord's behalf shall disclose in writing at or before the Lease term begins: (1) any person(s) authorized to manage the rental property and (2) an owner or person to act on behalf of the owner to receive notices and demands.

The Tenant should be given a copy of the signed inventory.

Frequently Asked Questions
Who needs a Lease Agreement in Kansas?
Anyone who rents real estate needs a Lease Agreement. This is true whether you rent a single-family home, apartment, duplex, or condo. The Lease is the document that outlines all terms of the rental relationship. It also protects the Landlord, or lessor, and Tenant, or lessee, should there be any disputes.
While a basic Lease form or generic, fillable Lease is better than nothing, it can leave Landlords without the complete protection that they need. A simple state agreement, like the one offered by the Kansas Association of Realtors, is better but can still leave Landlords unprotected.
To make sure that you and your Rental Unit are protected, it’s vital to have a thorough state-specific Lease Agreement in place before handing over possession of the property.
How long can a residential Lease be in Kansas?
The standard Lease term in Kansas is one year (12 months). However, shorter and longer Lease terms are recognized as long as they’re clearly stated in the Lease Agreement. To help meet every Landlord’s need, we offer a Vacation Rental Agreement, Month-to-Month Lease Agreement, and short-term Lease Agreement.
Does a Lease Agreement have to be signed to be legally binding?
Yes, the Lease Agreement needs to be signed by both the Landlord and Tenant to be legally binding. It does not need to be notarized to be considered legal and binding. That said, it can be notarized if the parties want to do so.
How should I store my Kansas Rental Contract?
It’s important that you securely store signed Lease Agreements and that they’re accessible to refer back to as needed. There are lots of options when it comes to storing your Leases. Our Kansas Residential Lease Agreement is automatically stored securely on the cloud once it’s signed. Landlords can access it there via ezCloudStorage.
In addition, our Leases are EZ to print or download as a PDF. There are plenty of options to meet every Landlord’s needs.

- Kansas 14-Day Notice to Perform or Vacate: Use this notice for a Lease violation other than nonpayment of rent. It gives Tenants 14 days to cure the Lease violation and, if it’s not cured, the Tenant must be out within 30 days from the date when the notice was issued.
