   In the legal realm of landlordÔÇÉtenant relationships, Arkansas is unique among the states: there is no explicit or implicit Warranty of Habitability. While the vast majority of landlords are good people who take care of their properties, there are some landlords who do not, and who allow their rentals to fall into disrepair.   The Landlord Association is in support of a Habitability Bill  with minimum standard requirements that is fair to both landlords and tenants.
The Landlord Association is also in favor of an eviction law that would be uniform state wide and provide a quick , simple and inexpensive  method of removing bad tenants from our properties.
We look forward to working with representatives  during the 2017 session in order to accomplish such laws.
