A very important statute for landlords:
18-16-110. Landlord’s liability arising from alleged defects or disrepair of premises.
No landlord or agent or employee of a landlord shall be liable to a tenant or a tenant’s licensee or invitee for death, personal injury, or property damage proximately caused by any defect or disrepair on the premises absent the landlord’s:
(1) Agreement supported by consideration or assumption by conduct of a duty to undertake an obligation to maintain or repair the leased premises; and
(2) Failure to perform the agreement or assumed duty in a reasonable manner.
In short, don’t promise anything and you’re not liable for anything that happens. More on the Arkansas Landlord-Tenant laws tomorrow.
