In Louisiana, a landlord can only evict a tenant through judicial process.  Lock-outs, removal of the tenant’s property, utility terminations or otherwise rendering the premises uninhabitable or inaccessible, are prohibited as they are in most states.

Security Deposits


 There is a law in Louisiana called the "Lessee's Deposit Law," that says a landowner must return your deposit within 30 days of the date you move out. If any part of a deposit is not returned, the landowner must send you a list of the things you are being charged for and the rest of the deposit. A deposit may be kept for unreasonable wear to the apartment. The act penalizes the willful failure of the landowner to obey the law by permitting the tenant the right to recover actual damages or $200, whichever is greater. Failure to remit within 30 days of a tenant's written demand for a refund shall constitute willful failure. The judge may award costs and lawyer's fees to the side that wins if you take the landowner to Court. The law says you cannot give up, or waive, this right, even in a lease.
