A Pennsylvania 10-Day Notice to Quit (Non-Payment) is a formal written notice to notify a tenant of a breach due to failure to pay rent. The notice demands that past-due rent be satisfied within 10 days or they will be removed from the premises. The landlord can send a notice to quit the day after a tenant fails to pay rent, as there is no grace period in the state of Pennsylvania.

The notice to quit will begin on the day it is given to the tenant, whereas in other states the countdown starts on the following day. Be mindful that weekends and holidays are not discounted, therefore every day counts unless otherwise stated in the lease agreement.

Laws 68 P.S. § 250.501(b)
