A Louisiana 5-Day Notice to Quit (Non-Compliance) is a document that notifies the tenant that they have committed a breach of the rental agreement. The notice must specifically state the breach (non-compliance) and give details as to how the tenant can go about fixing the issue. Most states allow the tenant more time to fix a breach when it’s a non-compliance issue, however, Louisiana is strict on the 5 days notice, whether that’s for the non-payment of rent or a non-compliance.

If the tenant fails to comply with the notice to quit by not fixing the issue and failing to give up possession, the landlord shall bring an eviction lawsuit against the tenant within the local court. Unlike other States, the landlord has the right to evict the tenant even if the tenant pays rent within those 5 days. Before paying, the tenant should find out whether or not the landlord will evict them before payment. If a hearing is set, the courts will notify the tenant of the date and time and both parties will have the opportunity to argue their case in court.
