Legal Answers
55 Questions Answered
Q. In Arkansas I have withheld rent due to electrical issues and refused to let the landlord to fix the issue
A: The fact that he is not hiring someone else to fix the electrical issues will not be a defense to an unlawful detainer suit (an eviction lawsuit), if he files one. If he decides to sue for an eviction because you haven't been paying rent, there's a good chance he'll win. Arkansas is one of the least friendly states for tenants in the US.
Q. Tenant got (way) behind on rent, then moved out (mostly). Can I take possession. What about rent?
A: If the tenant has quit possession, you can take possession of the unit. To recover rent, you'll likely have to file suit and get a judgment. That may prove difficult if you are unable to locate them and serve them with a summons and complaint. Depending on how much they owe you, it may be an exercise in futility to try and get a judgment. That is especially true if they had no way of paying you rent. They may not have any property to secure the judgment to or wages to garnish. Whether hiring an attorney to sue them is worth it entirely depends on how much money they owe you and whether you want to risk spending a bunch of money to possibly get nothing back.
Q. I was attacked by a security guard at a hospital while on a 72 hour hold for Suicide. The attack was unprovoked.
A: You should consult an attorney with experience in intentional torts. If this security guard truly did attack you unprovoked, and the whole incident is on video, you could have a strong case against both the security guard and the hospital for any injuries you sustained in the attack.
