Arkansas Rental Lease Agreement Templates | PDF | Word

The Arkansas rental agreements are used to create, terminate, or screen for the lease of commercial or residential property in the State of Arkansas. The documents are generally structured around a landlord/tenant business relationship, providing the list of responsibilities both parties hold as well as their respective rights. Each of these forms serves as evidence to a consensus drawn between the owner and the lessee as to the nature of the arrangement, and therefore, they can be used as a point of reference should either party feel their rights have been violated.

Arkansas Lease Agreements

The Arkansas ten-day notice to quit form is to be used at the landlord’s discretion to grant the tenant the ability to get caught up on rent by warning them of the tardiness of the owed amount, any applicable fees, and the possibility of eviction should the tenant fail to fulfill their obligations. According to § 18-17-701(b), after rent is five (5) days late, the property owner has the right to terminate the rental contract; therefore, this notice is particularly generous in…

The Arkansas month-to-month lease agreement is a contract between a tenant and landlord that renews every month so long as rent payment was delivered and both parties wish to extend the lease. Generally speaking, an agreement such as this is used when the tenant is looking for a temporary dwelling and doesn’t plan on living on the residence for a standard full term (twelve months).

The Arkansas Rental Application is used to verify the legitimacy of a potential tenant, whether the tenant is involved with a one year, month-to-month, sub-lease, or commercial lease agreement. In a rental application, things such as an individual’s credit, background, employment, and even any previous rental history may be examined to verify the credibility of the possible tenant.

The Arkansas sublease agreement is a contract which involves the tenant of a rented property (called the “sublessor”) leasing the property out to a third-party called a “sublessee.” The sublessor should remember to inform the landlord whenever there is another party assisting to pay prior to drafting a sublease agreement. In the case that the sublessee does not make a payment to the sublessor for a certain month, the sublessor has to pay the rent to the landlord in full by…

STATE DISCLOSURES

Arkansas does not currently have any required disclosures to be delivered from a landlord to a tenant. However, under Federal law, if the housing unit was built prior to 1978, the lead paint disclosure form must be attached and signed by each lessee.

If a tenant or landlord has any questions about the laws within the State, they should review the Arkansas Residential Landlord-Tenant Act of 2007 and Chapter 16 – Landlord-Tenant.

SECURITY DEPOSITS

Maximum (§ 18-16-304) – A landlord cannot demand more than two (2) months' rent.

Returning (§ 18-16-305) – The landlord is required to send the security deposit back to the tenant, along with a list of any itemized deduction(s), within thirty (30) days from the lease termination date. If the landlord cannot find the tenant within one-hundred-and-eighty (180) days, any and all funds become the property of the landlord.

LANDLORD'S ACCESS/ENTRY

There is no exact timeframe given by the State that states the notice required from the landlord before entering or performing an alteration or repair. However, it does state that the tenant may not 'unreasonably withhold' the property from being accessed by the landlord (§ 18-17-602).
