Landlords in Louisiana can avoid basic issues with tenants by following the actions when renting out a property. Here are actions landlords can take before hand to avoid tenant disputes.
•deliver the property to the tenant at the agreed time and in good condition for its leased purpose.
•maintain the property in a suitable condition for the purpose for which it was leased.
•protect the tenant’s right of peaceful possession for the duration of the lease.
•refrain from making any alterations to the property.
•pay taxes, assessments and other charges to the property.
the landlord sells the property during the term of the lease, then the new owner may change the lease terms or evict the tenant. In order to prevent this, the lease must be recorded in the parish where the property is located. The tenant may have an action against the landlord for loss sustained as a result of the sale.
