Did you know that residential tenants in Arkansas have fewer protections than in any other state? Arkansas law is unbalanced, favoring landlords at the expense of tenants. This website is a clearinghouse for factual information about existing laws, efforts to make the laws more balanced, and new developments.

We are a coalition of organizations, community groups, and individuals who support changing Arkansas residential landlord-tenant laws to correct the balance between landlord and tenant rights, so that tenants will no longer be subject to jail or criminal fines, essentially for nonpayment of rent; have their health endangered by landlords’ failure to repair; or be forced to live in unlivable conditions.

We hope to make this website the most complete, accurate resource for information about Arkansas landlord-tenant laws and the efforts to make them more fair. Keep coming back! Much more information will be added in the next few months.
