A Louisiana room rental agreement is a document letting a principal tenant rent an individual room on their leased property to another tenant. It covers elements like all the tenant’s financial obligations, expectations for cleanliness, and overnight guest rules.
This agreement helps ensure each party can live comfortably, as it highlights rules for noise levels, pets, alcohol use, and party hosting. It’s useful for the primary tenant who has extra space and wants to rent out a single room but doesn’t want to add someone to the main lease agreement.

Louisiana’s tenant-landlord laws (Louisiana Revised Statutes Title IX) don’t have a defining point when a guest becomes a tenant. Instead, landlords can make this distinction within the original lease agreement.
