Arkansas Property and Real Estate Laws
Welcome to FindLaw's section on Arkansas property and real estate laws, covering statutes that govern the landlord/tenant relationship, homestead protection from creditors, and more. The state's adverse possession law, for instance, allows individuals with no official ownership stake to claim ownership of an otherwise underutilized property after seven years if the "possession" is done openly. Homestead protection law, meanwhile, allows homeowners the ability to stay in their homes in the event of a bankruptcy by claiming a portion of their property as a "homestead."
