Create a high quality document online now!

The Louisiana Rental Month to Month Rental Agreement Form is reliable method to solidify an agreement between a landlord and a tenant. This type of lease is unique in its ability to give a flexibility to a residential rental agreement while still retaining the power of a lease or contract. That is, unlike a fixed term lease, there is a definable start date but no true termination date. This rental agreement exists at the will of both parties allowing either to terminate at any time.

The freedom to terminate can be useful for a variety of individuals and beneficial to all involved. This being said, there is also a consideration to be made. After all, this is a significant exchange of money and the control over a property is involved. In such a contract, a sudden departure by either party may have a drastic effect on one’s finances or life. Happily, Louisiana State civil codes remedy this situation by providing Civil Code 2728 requiring a terminating party to provide ten (10) days’ notice before the next payment date. This consideration may enable the remaining party to find a replacement with a reasonable amount of effort.

When reviewing this lease form, make sure to pay close attention to all disclosures and conditions regarding the property as well as the responsibilities and entitlements of each party. Once a signature is provided, it will be binding in a Louisiana State court.

Minimum Termination Period – Ten (10) days

Laws – Civil Code 2728
