Arkansas Standard Residential Lease Agreement

The Arkansas Standard Residential Lease Agreement brings a landlord and tenant(s) together around a binding agreement for the purpose of protecting those under the contract from one (1) of the parties breaching conditions contained within the document. After the landlord is finished editing the agreement to account for any unique scenarios, the tenants will need to read through the entire document before signing to ensure they agree on the terms and conditions. For landlords drafting documents, it is important to remember that they are required to follow rules regarding victims of domestic violence (§ 18-16-112), which includes not refusing rent to a victim, not refusing to change locks, not allowing perpetrators (that are in a protective order) to enter the property, and not punishing tenants that call the police in regards to domestic violence.
