A Louisiana standard residential lease agreement is a rental contract in which a landlord and tenant establish the terms affecting a newly-formed tenancy. Such leases often last one (1) year for a fixed period, meaning the residence has a defined start and end date. Additionally, the lease will stipulate on which date rent is due and the total lump sum. Tenants must abide by these set dates in order to fulfill their contractual duties. Prior to entering a formal agreement, the landlord should take the necessary steps to ensure their tenant meets an adequate standard. For instance, landlords often conduct background checks on potential renters to determine fiscal responsibility. A landlord reserves the right to turn down a candidate under the purview of the Fair Housing Act.
