Introduction

This blog post will provide an overview of state rental laws in Arkansas and provide resources for further information.

Arkansas Security Deposit Limits

State law in Arkansas requires landlords to disclose certain information about the security deposit to tenants in writing, including the amount of the security deposit, the date it was received, and how it will be held. The maximum amount of a security deposit that a landlord can collect from a tenant is two months’ rent.

Arkansas Lease Termination and Eviction Rules

In Arkansas, a standard lease agreement terminates on its end date unless the tenant and landlord agree to extend the lease or terminate it early. If a tenant breaches the lease, the landlord can terminate the agreement and begin the eviction process. The eviction process in Arkansas requires the landlord to provide the tenant with a written notice to vacate, followed by a court hearing if the tenant does not comply with the notice.

Subletting and Assignment in Arkansas

In Arkansas, tenants have the right to sublet or assign their lease to another tenant if the original lease agreement does not prohibit it. The tenant must provide the landlord with written notice of their intent to sublet or assign the lease and must include the name and contact information of the new tenant. The landlord has the right to approve or deny the sublet or assignment request.
