The Louisiana rental agreements are between the lessor and lessee of residential or commercial property. The document binds the parties into a landlord-tenant relationship that allows the tenant to stay on the property by payment and following the rules as outlined in the lease. It is understood that after the form is signed both parties are obligated to perform until the contract’s end term. All residential agreements should follow the Louisiana Attorney General’s Guide to Landlord and Tenant Laws.
