Start eviction proceedings for possession and a money judgement. If they still appear to be living there and have not abandoned the property you must evict first. In Kansas a 3 day notice is required. But in my experience as a landlord it is VERY hard to collect on a judgement. Sometimes it is better to cut your losses and re-rent as soon as possible. good luck and DON'T FORGET to conduct background checks on all your applicants in hopes to avoid this in the future.
