An Arizona 10-day notice to quit for non-compliance is a formal communication issued by a landlord to notify a tenant of lease violations or non-adherence to rental terms, excluding rent payment issues. The document stipulates ten days for the tenant to rectify the specified breach or vacate the property, as mandated by Arizona’s landlord-tenant laws.
Typically, this notice outlines the specific lease violation or material non-compliance that needs correction within the given timeframe. Common breaches might include unauthorized pet ownership, noise disturbances, or falsifying information listed on the rental agreement or application. Failure to remedy the stated violation within the designated ten-day period could result in the initiation of eviction proceedings by the landlord.
Governing Law — A.R.S. § 33-1368(A).
Notice Types – There are two distinct types of this notice in Arizona:
- Curable – The tenant is given an opportunity to correct the issue within the notice period for minor lease violations like making excessive noise, having unauthorized pets, or failing to maintain the rental property.
- Noncurable – The tenant is not given the opportunity to remedy the situation in case of serious breaches involving illegal activities or behavior that threatens the safety or well-being of others.
