About

Arkansas Renters United fights for balanced landlord tenant laws so that renters have rights and protections.

We aim to:

• MOBILIZE individuals directly affected by substandard housing

• SPEAK OUT against cruel landlords

• CHANGE the structure of landlord tenant relations in Arkansas.

Arkansas has the worst landlord-tenant laws compared to any other state. We are the only state that does not have laws in place to protect renters. A Warranty of Habitability law would allow renters to protect themselves and their families from slumlords who do not make needed repairs or rent out unsafe and unhealthy apartments and rent houses. In order to give renters in Arkansas a voice, members of Arkansas Community Organizations have started a renters organization called Arkansas Renters United (ARU). ARU will fight for balanced landlord tenant laws so that renters have rights and protections. The organization aims to mobilize individuals directly affected by substandard housing, focus their attention on speaking out against cruel landlords, and inevitably change the structure of landlord tenant relations in Arkansas.
