Louisiana 5 Day Notice Comply or Quit

The Louisiana five (5) day notice to comply or quit is used by a landlord or property manager to inform a tenant of their lease violations. The notice states that the tenant must either vacate the rental unit or correct their lease violations within five (5) days. If the individual does not comply with the terms before the end of the five (5) day notice period, the landlord has the right to terminate the tenancy and sue the tenant for eviction.

Louisiana landlords are not legally obligated to offer tenants the option of retaining their tenancy by correcting their lease violations. Therefore, the landlord can terminate the tenancy regardless of whether or not the tenant corrects their violations (for these eviction cases, the landlord should serve the tenant with a 5-Day Notice to Quit).

Note: The five (5) day notice period does not include weekends or legal holidays.
