Re: “No rights for tenants in Arkansas

We have leased the house we live in for 14 years. We have taken care of the house as it was our own. However the same carpet still lays on the floors in this house as did when we first moved in. (The house was I believe five years old when we moved in) The carpet needs to be replaced as it is now right at twenty years old. It's a berber carpet that is torn pulling away from the walls, every doorway is almost worn down to bare concrete. The landlady started talking about replacing the flooring five years ago but has come up with every excuse in the book as to why she is unable to replace the flooring. The last one being we had been late on the rent a few times....mind you she recieves her $705 every mth...couple of days late sometimes but she gets it!! She has never repaired one thing over the years. We were promised a garage door opener BEFORE we moved in...that never happened...and yes we did ask her several times about it. I understand there are bad tentents out there and they have no regard for others property but there are also good ones that DO take care of rental property and even spend money out of their own pockests to make improvements. There are also good landlords that maintain their poperty. I applaud them! However the low lifes that just pocket money every month from rental property and could care less about what their property looks like or what their tentents live in are just slum lords. We are in the process of finding another place to live and I personally hope this house sits empty forever. I am sure it will since landlady can't afford to replace the flooring. She sure want be able to afford to update anything or repair anything else....no one will rent this place without some repairs being made!!
