Louisiana Residential Lease Agreement – PDF Template
Download the free Louisiana residential lease agreement that legally binds a landlord (lessor) and a person seeking to rent (lessee) into a contract for the possession of real estate for a fixed period of time. The agreement is usually signed with the first (1st) month’s rent paid and a Security Deposit (to be decided by the landlord but usually equal to a monthly installment of rent) and both parties must uphold their terms until the end date.
The landlord, at their sole discretion, may charge a non-refundable fee and require the tenant to complete a credit application before agreeing to any type of agreement. This way the landlord can avoid the possibility of a future eviction by reviewing the tenant’s employment, income, credit report, previous rental history, and references provided.
