The Arkansas lease agreements may be used for any landlord-tenant arrangement where the utilization of space, commercial or residential, by a tenant in return for payment agreed upon rent. All residential agreements should use Title 18, Subtitle 2, Chapter 17 (Arkansas Residential Landlord-Tenant Act of 2007) for reference and commercial contracts should review Chapter 2a (Leases) of the Arkansas Uniform Commercial Code.
Rental Application – All leases, before being signed, should have the tenant undergo a lookup of their credit, employment, and income verification to make certain that the tenant’s background is correct.
