An Arkansas 14-day notice to quit for non-compliance is a formal document issued by a landlord to a tenant for lease violations or breaches of rental terms other than non-payment of rent. This notice gives the tenant a fixed period to rectify the specified violation or vacate the property following Arkansas’ landlord-tenant laws.
Typically, this notice outlines the lease violation or non-compliance issue that requires correction within the given timeframe. Common breaches might include unauthorized subletting, failure to maintain the property, or violating specific terms outlined in the lease agreement. Failure to remedy the stated violation within the designated 14-day period may lead to the initiation of eviction proceedings by the landlord.
Governing Law — Ark. Code § 18-17-701(a).
Notice Types – There are two types of this notice used in Arkansas:
- Curable – Issued for minor lease violations, allowing the tenant the opportunity to rectify the issue within the notice period.
- Noncurable – The tenant is not given the opportunity to correct the issue and must vacate in case of repeated lease violations or illegal activities.
