Under Ark. Code Ann. § 18-16-101, it is a violation of Arkansas law for a tenant to fail to pay rent as agreed and then fail to vacate ten days after receiving written notice to do so. The law does not give the attorney, court, police or landlord the right to remove the tenant from the property. However, if the rental property is in Springdale, the City Attorney's Office may be able to file charges and request a court order for the tenant to pay back rent. Violations of this law are punishable by a fine of $25 a day. If you are interested in this type of action, our office has apacket for landlords (PDF).
