A Louisiana lease termination (10-day notice) is a legal document that terminates a month-to-month lease agreement between a landlord and tenant without providing a reason. The notice must be provided to the other party at least ten days before the end of the month.
If a tenant fails to vacate the property by the start of the subsequent rental period, the landlord can terminate the tenancy and initiate an eviction lawsuit. It is essential for both parties to be compliant with the law, and the tenant must provide a reliable mailing address for the landlord to fulfill their obligations. The security deposit must be returned within thirty days of the move-out, and any portion retained for damages must be accounted for.
