Landlord Association of Arkansas
Mission Statement

Our mission as the Landlords Association of Arkansas is to provide local landlord associations the opportunity to join together to assist each other by offering suggestion, encouragement and education when ever possible. To maintain and improve the living conditions and value of rental property in the state of Arkansas. To develop a reputation of landlords as important and caring business people in the state of Arkansas. To help implement cooperation between tenants, landlords, state and local governments.



What Is The Landlords Association of Arkansas?

The Landlords Association of Arkansas is a vital organization to the success of landlords statewide. We strive to be the best property managers possible.

The Landlord Association of Arkansas is comprised of several local associations. The local associations are active in affairs specific to their city or county. The state-level association provides a method where the local associations share information and common objectives.

We have been successful in passing legislation that has strengthened our ability as property owners to operate our livelihoods, while defeating legislation intended to unfairly affect our profession, whether such legislation consists of bad regulations, unfair taxation, or other impact.

The Landlords Association of Arkansas is here to support the local landlord organizations in any way we can, and we are willing to answer any questions for you; to commit to that goal state members will be available to come speak at your local meetings to promote our common agenda with your membership.

  • Have a functioning roof and building envelope;
  • Have functioning electricity, potable water, and sanitary sewer system that conforms to applicable building and housing codes in existence at the time of installation;

Before signing a lease/rental agreement the applicant will have the opportunity to inspect the property, have someone inspect the property on their behalf at their expense.
