In the event a tenant breaches the terms of a lease and you need to seek to have them evicted, you should follow the following steps:

Step 1 – If a tenant is not in compliance with the terms of the lease, you must serve the tenant with a notice to quit. If they fail to pay rent within 5 days of the date the rent is due, you may serve a 3-Day Notice to Quit (Non-Payment of Rent). For other breaches, you may serve a 14-Day Notice to Quit (Non-Compliance) and to inform the tenant of the termination of the lease in the normal course of business, you may serve a 30-Day Notice to Quit (Month to Month).

Step 2 – If the tenant fails to respond to the notice to quit the landlord may file an action in the Arkansas Circuit Court. The following documents will need to be filed, along with a $165 filing fee:

Step 3 – The landlord then must obtain the services of a process server to serve the documents on the tenant.

Step 4 – The tenant has 5 days to pay the owed rent and to file an answer with the court. If the tenant fails to do either of these requirements, the court may issue a writ of possession which will give possession of the premises back to the landlord and the tenant will be barred from accessing the premises.

Step 5 – A landlord may then go after the tenant for damages including unpaid rent, cleaning costs, court costs, and other damages.
