Louisiana 5 Day Notice to Quit or Pay | NonPayment of Rent

The Louisiana five (5) day notice to quit or pay, referred to in CCP 4701, is the standard notice to quit form used in the majority of evictions in Louisiana. The notice is specifically used when tenants have failed to pay the rent in accordance with the lease agreement. It gives the tenant a five (5) day window to either move out of the rental property or pay the rent. If the tenant does not move out or pay the owed amount of rent, the landlord can file a “Rule to Evict” (i.e. eviction lawsuit) in the district court of the county where the rental property is located in.
