Pulaski Co. landlord law may raise rent price

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV)- A new landlord law could make renting more expensive for people in Pulaski County. Judge Herbert Wright made the decision recently to ruled the failure to vacate criminal eviction unconstitutional.

This means renters in Pulaski County will not get arrested for failing to pay rent and staying on the property. If landlords want to evict a tenant they will have to get an attorney and go through months of court hearings.

Mike Corker owns several hundred apartments in the county. He is not happy with the new changes. "They're no longer hearing our ten day failure to vacate law," said Corker. If a renter does not pay on time, landlords will not be able to kick them out as easily.
