You can now be thrown in jail in ARKANSAS for being late on your rent!
I searched GLP and didn't see any threads on this....this is absurd....if you haven't paid your rent after a 10 day notice, the landlord can hit you with a MISDEMEANOR, put in you in jail-it is now CRIMINAL to be delinquient on your rent-but note, there is no laws protecting the tenants from scumlords who don't manage/fix/maintain properties.

WTF is happening???

Hummm that might stop some of the free loaders that plan to move every 6 months by not paying their rent and costing the landlord a small fortune to get them evicted.They move in,pay a month or two then free ride for 3 plus months for the court system to finally get them out.Then they do a fortune in damage while being evicted...
Shouldnt be jailed but should be put out after 30 days if they arent paying.

Thia has been the law in Arkansas for a long time. The law is definitely pro-property owner, but the article is a little misleading I think. You aren't automatically given a misdemeanor. You are given a chance to leave.....72 hours (not much time, I know). I've never heard of a property owner using this law (I used to work for many rental property owners) unless the tenant actually lapsed a month on rent.

Everyone needs to wake up & simply STOP paying into this debt based economy sham. And thats student loans, that inflated mortgage on the house you'll never own & are just paying the bank to let you stay in, credit cards, everything. That would wake the system up real quick.

I read the link. The title to this thread is NOT correct!

Tenants are not jailed for being "lat on your rent." They are jailed for refusing to vacate the premises when they have not paid rent and have been given notice.

Move on. Nothing here. One star for this illiterate thread.

Many landlords are small people, too. They're just trying to find a way to supplement their income. The profit margin is often so small as to hardly be worth it. You buy a house on a 20 year loan with $550 a month payments. You rent it out for $650. Sounds ok except for repairs including repairs from shitty tenants, property taxes, and of course whenever the property sits vacant for a month in between tenants.

Many such landlords really make nothing at all until the property is paid off with the bank. By that time they'll have to sink untold thousands into what was already an older house when they bought it 20 years ago. Roofing, bad subfloors, termites, complete remodel maybe, appliances, etc.

Just somebody trying to make a living and shithead losers rip them off.

I understand that & totally agree. But this is a slippery slope towards a "debtors prison" type of society & the next step is to jail you if you can't pay your mortgage or loans. The loans that you had to take out to say, get an education or to buy a car that wasn't a POS. Debt is a requirement now in the US in order to be able to live any sort of life. How can people be expected to pay their loans & bills if they've lost their jobs (through no fault of their own) & with no money flowing in?

People on top call them "dead beats", but we all know there's much more to the story than that.

You can owe them however much...a million dollars, whatever. You don't get arrested for that. You get arrested for refusing to vacate the private property that you have no right to occupy because you paid no rent. You are notified before they have you served so that you can vacate.

Yes - but if you get scammed under a land contract in Arkansas? There is not help for you ANYWHERE.

I found this out the hard way - and so have many others - the person selling the land to you under a contract revokes the contract WITHOUT CAUSE - and resells the land.

You can go to small claims court - but that is mostly a waste of time. Unless you have several thousand dollars to hire a lawyer? You just lost thousands of dollars.

The laws are made by those who profit from them - the rest of us? Caveat Emptor.
