The Arizona five (5) day notice to quit is given by a landlord to a tenant for health or safety violation which puts the tenant(s), occupants, or other tenants at risk for injury. The violation stated in the notice must be “cured” within the five (5) day notice period or the tenant will be forced to vacate the premises. If the tenant does neither, a forcible entry and detainer case can be brought against them in the Justice or Supreme court.
