Attorney General takes action against non-compliant Little Rock landlord

Little Rock, Arkansas – Attorney General Tim Griffin has taken legal action against Imran Bohra, a Little Rock landlord, for allegedly failing to comply with a consent judgement from 2022. This development represents a continuing effort by the Attorney General’s office to ensure tenant rights and safe living conditions in rental properties.

The backstory of this legal tussle dates back to 2019 when then Attorney General Leslie Rutledge filed a lawsuit against Imran Bohra and his company, Entropy Systems, Inc. The lawsuit alleged that Bohra rented properties deemed unfit for living. Housing inspectors had detailed five pages of issues at a home on Wolfe Street, yet Bohra proceeded to rent it out two months later for $550.

The lawsuit further highlighted six other properties in Little Rock, all rented out by Bohra, with claims of life safety issues. The resolution of this case saw the defendants enter a consent judgement, which included the suspension of a $20,000 civil penalty. This suspension was conditional, contingent upon compliance with the agreement’s terms.

However, according to Attorney General Griffin, Bohra and Entropy Systems have since neglected to include an essential addendum in all leases. This addendum is supposed to notify tenants of their right to file a complaint with the Attorney General’s office, a requirement stipulated in the consent judgement.

Griffin, expressing strong concerns about this non-compliance, stated, “The defendants have blatantly disregarded their obligations and now must be held accountable. Arkansas consumers deserve to be treated fairly, and I will continue to hold accountable those who engage in deceptive tactics while doing business.”

This situation not only reflects the legal challenges in ensuring landlord compliance but also underscores the broader issue of tenant rights and safety in rental housing. As of 2019, Bohra reportedly owned around 150 rental properties in Pulaski County, highlighting the potential impact of this legal action on a significant number of tenants.
