The Arizona 10-day notice to quit for second health and safety violation terminates a tenancy between a landlord and a tenant who has committed a second violation of their obligations with regard to the health and safety of others, giving the tenant ten (10) days to quit the premises. This notice is only used if the landlord has already warned the tenant about violating health and safety obligations by delivering a 5-Day Notice to Quit for Non-Compliance Affecting Health and Safety at some point during the tenancy. After the ten-day period has ended, the lease between the parties is terminated and the tenant must have vacated the premises before the last day of the notice period. If the tenant maintains possession after the notice period, the landlord can file an eviction action.
