One of the most frustrating aspects of being a landlord is dealing with tenants who have not submitted rent payments on time. If you have experienced this, we feel for you! If you haven’t experienced it – well, unfortunately, it’s only a matter of time. Outside of the fact that there are bills waiting to be paid (landlords do actually have their own bills to pay, to the dismay of tenants), the discomfort of having to address this issue makes it all the more frustrating. Luckily, the Arkansas 5 Day Notice of Default for Non-Payment of Rent will inform your tenants of the urgency of submitting their past due rent payments in a professional and efficient way and is the first step in the eviction process.

landlords really need to know

This notice is used when your tenant is in default for non-payment of rent and the grace period has expired. The document informs the tenant that they are in default and specifies the amount that is past due. It also notifies the tenant that they have five days from the date of receiving the notice to pay the past due amount or the lease will be terminated. If the tenant does not pay the rent prior to the end of the five days you may begin legal proceedings against the tenant for eviction. The document is straightforward and informs the tenant that their failure to comply will result in eviction.

Additionally, because this is an official notice of default the document includes a “Service of Notice” section where you can state whether the notice was hand-delivered or sent by certified or regular mail. The document is created in three simple steps and has Auto-Fill Technology, automatically inputting the tenant and landlord’s name and address for quick and efficient use.

IMPORTANT: Arkansas evictions can be complicated and having the advice of an attorney is suggested.
