Several portions of the Louisiana code govern Louisiana month-to-month lease agreements. Primarily, state laws La. Rev. Stat. Ann. §§ 9:3251 through 9:3261 and La. Civ. Code. Ann. art. 2668 through 2729. Security deposits are not limited by state law. However, the landlord must return the security deposit to the tenant within 30 days of moving out.
Landlords and property managers may find seeking legal advice beneficial because Louisiana landlord-tenant laws are complex. Understanding these laws is crucial to protecting your interest before entering into Louisiana rental lease agreements with a new tenant.
Under La. Civ. Code. ann. Art. 2728, the notice period for the lease termination of a Louisiana month-to-month lease agreement is ten days before the end of the month. The ten days' notice must be calendar days according to state law. A lease termination must be a written notice.
