The landlord doesn`t have to make repairs if it`s not stated in the lease, she said. If an owner does not repair, he must be safe and correct. • Most homeowners charge a deposit to cover damage outside of normal wear and tear when you live in the residence. If a landlord owns six or more properties, the deposit cannot exceed two months` rent. Tenants have the right to recover their deposit within 60 days of the termination of the rental agreement, less an amount deducted for repairs. Tenants must be provided with a list of repairs made and their costs. It is often also important to include a legal disclosure in this section to remind the tenant or tenants that failure to clear the unit on the date indicated may result in legal action. It is important for tenants to understand the importance of respecting termination. The owner also has the right to have access to inspect, make repairs, make improvements, check for possible illegal activities or show them to a potential buyer or someone who will move in after the extract, Higgins said.
Most leases say something like the right to enter within reasonable hours and some leases say you know 24 hours in advance that they are coming. But if it`s not in the lease, they can literally pay at any time. Other rights may be provided for in the lease, and they usually are, Higgins said. That is the goal. A Notice to Vacate is a necessary document to terminate monthly leases in Arkansas. State law requires that the termination be terminated at least 30 days in advance. However, state law does not require the termination of fixed-term rental contracts on their end date. • Tenants may be evicted if they have not paid the rent, if they remain in the residence at the end of the lease or if they have not violated the rental agreement. Arkansas has civil and criminal deportations. If you are in arrears with the rent, a notice of non-evacuation may be served on you and you must leave the property within 10 days or be served with a criminal complaint.
A landlord must guarantee a tenant quiet enjoyment of the property, but that may depend on other residents in the building or complex, Higgins said. But if the neighbors have parties and a landlord doesn`t do anything to stop him, that could be a reason to break a lease.
