Lenexa, KS asked in Landlord - Tenant for Kansas

Q: Kansas Statute 58-2557. Reasonable notice to the tenant for entry. What is considered reasonable?

Landlord is entering for pest control but require a lot done before the spraying (basically the whole kitchen and bathroom emptied) or they charge us. They put a note on the door today while I was at work that the pest control will be here between 9-6 tomorrow. Is that note enough? Can I request more notice? If they placed the note on my door at 3pm and they spray at 9am, is that illegal since it was under 24 hours? I can't find what Kansas defines as "reasonable."

A: Reasonable usually means under the circumstances.

The landlord is juggling availability of the pest control people and the tenants.

Usually, the complaint is that the landlord isn't doing anything.
