AR Code § 18-17-911 (2016) What's This?

(a) (1) After the commencement of eviction proceedings by the issuance of an order to vacate or to show cause as provided in § 18-17-902, the rent for the use and occupancy of the premises involved shall continue to accrue so long as the tenant remains in possession of the premises at the rate as prevailed immediately before the issuance of the order to vacate or show cause.

(2) The tenant shall be liable for the payment of the rent, the collection of which may be enforced as provided with respect to other rents.

(b) The acceptance by the landlord of any rent, whether it shall have accrued at the time of the issuance of the order to vacate or to show cause or shall subsequently accrue, shall not operate as a waiver of the landlord's right to insist upon eviction or as a renewal or extension of the tenancy, but the rights of the parties as they existed at the time of the issuance of the order to vacate or to show cause shall control.
