Louisiana Rental Lease Agreements (6 Types)


Louisiana rental agreements allow a tenant and landlord to enter into a binding real estate contract for a residential or commercial property. The standard one (1) year lease is the most common and is written and signed after a review of the tenant’s credit and background. This can be done with a rental application as the tenant’s information and consent are required. Access to the property is granted after all deposits are submitted and the contract is authorized. Landlords will also often require potential lessees to complete a rental application to determine their reliability as tenants.
