How to Write an Eviction Notice in Arizona
For an eviction notice to be legally compliant:
- List tenants’ full names;
- List full address;
- Include grounds for eviction;
- Calculate and include termination date;
- Include date notice served;
- The landlord’s signature and printed name; and
- The landlord’s address and telephone number.
Without this information on the notice, a judge may not be able to proceed with an eviction proceeding and the landlord’s case may be dismissed.
How to Calculate Expiration Date in Arizona
An eviction notice in Arizona takes effect the day after it is served. However, there is one exception, the Immediate Notice to Vacate, which takes effect the same day it is served. All notice periods are based on calendar days. If the last day of the notice period falls on a weekend or legal holiday, then the notice will not officially expire until the end of the next judicial day (a day when the courthouse is open).
