Evicting a tenant for non-payment of rent, otherwise known in Kentucky as a forcible detainer action, is usually the most straightforward method for a landlord to terminate a tenant’s right to the premises. Although Kentucky judges will offer a hearing to any tenant who requests one, one of the few accepted legal defenses a tenant can present during this hearing is proof that rent was in fact paid within the required timeframe. This is because under the Uniform Residential Landlord Tenant Act (“URLTA”), a landlord waives the right to evict a tenant if the landlord has accepted any payments (full or partial) after beginning the eviction process.
