Does Arkansas still have the squatting rights / home steadin

This answer was rated:

does arkansas still have the laws that state you can stake off a parcial of land and do upgrades on it yearly, and after so long it will become yours . if so, what is the A - Z process
"Squatter's rights" is also known as "adverse possession". Here is the site for the adverse possession law in Ark.:http://www.arkleg.state.ar.us/ftproot/acts/2005/public/act84.pdf

Briefly, Arkansas law requires the person seeking title to the land to have possession of the land, had title to the property and paid taxes for 7 years, or 15 years depending upon the land; or had contiguous land and paid taxes on that land for 7 years. There are exceptions and further regulations, and you should review the law yourself. If you believe you qualify for adverse possession, please consult with an Ark. property lawyer as the lawyer can help you get title under Ark. adverse possession law. Good luck.

I am not licensed to practice law in Arkansas so I cannot work on your case. Arkansas does have "adverse possession". A capable Arkansas property lawyer can take you through the process. Best wishes.
