Arkansas Tenant Refusal of Access to Rental Property

The Arkansas Residential Landlord-Tenant Act of 2007 provides the following remedy for landlords when tenants refuse the landlord’s right to enter the dwelling unit:

Injunctive Relief or Termination

If the tenant refuses to allow lawful access, the landlord may obtain injunctive relief in district court without posting bond to compel access or terminate the rental agreement.

Damages and Attorney’s Fees

In either case of compelling access or terminating the rental agreement through the use of the district court, the landlord may recover actual damages and reasonable attorney’s fees.

See the tenant’s obligations under the law in the section Arkansas Tenant Must Allow Access to Rental Property.

A.C.A. § 18-17-705.
