The Louisiana five (5) day notice to quit or cure, in accordance with the laws located in CCP 4701, is used to notify a tenant of the landlord’s intention to terminate the lease agreement. The notice states that the tenant must either fix (aka “cure”) the violation they have committed, or move out of the rental unit within five (5) days. If the tenant does not move out or cure the violation within five days, the landlord can file an eviction lawsuit (known in Louisiana as a “Rule to Evict”) in court. The notice should be served personally, or left in a conspicuous location on the premises of the rental unit (and then another copy sent to the tenant via certified mail).
Note: When serving the tenant with the notice, it’s highly recommended to have a witness come with you.
