Arkansas is the only state in the country that does not have legislation to set minimum standards on rental housing in Arkansas.
These laws are called “implied warranty of habitability” laws, and Arkansas has been labeled as the worst place in the country for tenants to rent a home or apartment.
We know that business is a key institution in a free society. It provides the goods and services that people need to improve their lives and it helps create a culture of mutual benefit, a win-win for the business and the customer, and an area for improvement for Arkansas business is the landlord-tenant relationship.
Urge your lawmakers to fight to support good business and safer housing in Arkansas!
