The Louisiana ten (10) day lease termination letter, as provided by CC 2728, is used by landlords to inform month-to-month tenants of an upcoming lease termination. The minimum notice period for month-to-month (and other “at-will” tenancies) is ten (10) business days. Holidays and weekends do not generally count towards the notice period. It’s important to give the tenant the full ten days to move out before filing an eviction action (otherwise known as a “Rule to Evict”) in the district court where the rental property is located.
