Mesquite, TX asked in Real Estate Law for Arkansas

Q: Does Arkansas law require the seller of a piece of land to disclose his or her marital status on the deed?

I purchased a piece of land from a widow who was the sole inheritor of the property. I prepared the deed myself and did not list her marital status on the deed. I am now trying to sell it through a title company and they said that, according to Arkansas law, her marital status must be listed on the deed. I have not been able to find such a requirement in the Arkansas Code. It'd be great if somebody could shed some light on that and where to find it in the AR Code (Title, Chapter, etc).

A: Sell it to someone else with another Deed or change the Deed you already drafted. You probably need an attorney and list it with an agent.
