Sample Five Day Notice Letter

by Norm Keyt, Arizona landlord tenant attorney

The following letter is an example of a five day notice letter that an Arizona residential landlord should send to a tenant who has not paid rent to start the eviction process.  The letter should be modified as necessary in light of the sender's particular facts and circumstances.  KEYTLaw recommends that you always consult with a knowledgeable Arizona eviction attorney before sending a five day notice to a residential tenant.
