Kansas Legal Services Tenant Issues and Rights Guide : Eviction

  • No matter the circumstances, your landlord is not allowed to evict you by themselves. Whenever your landlord wants to evict you, they must either have your agreement or get a court order.
  • This means your landlord cannot try to evict you by shutting off the utilities or changing the locks. If this happens, you may be able to sue your landlord for damages.

Eviction Alternative: Mediation
