An Arkansas lease termination letter (30-day notice) enables either the landlord or the tenant to end a month-to-month tenancy agreement without providing a specific reason for termination as long as the proper notice period is given.
Complying with the terms outlined in the lease agreement and adhering to Arkansas’ landlord-tenant laws ensures that the termination notice is legally sound, allowing both parties to conclude the rental arrangement in line with state regulations.
Governing Law — Ark. Code § 18-17-704(b).
Reasons to Use a 30-Day Notice to Vacate
Requesting a tenant to vacate the premises in Arkansas involves:
- No Cause Termination: In some cases, either the landlord or tenant may terminate a month-to-month tenancy without cause, but they must provide proper notice to do so.
- Change in Rental Terms: If the landlord intends to change the terms of the rental agreement (like rent increase or policy changes), and the tenant does not agree, a termination letter might be used to end the current agreement.
