A Louisiana 5 Day Notice to Quit (Non-Payment) is a letter used in the event a tenant fails to pay rent on the day it’s due. The day after the due date, the landlord can issue this notice to quit form and serve it to the tenant. The tenant will then have no less than 5 days to either pay rent in full or move out of the premises. However, the landlord does not need to give the tenant a chance to pay back their rent. They can simply issue a notice to vacate the property at the close of the 5 days without an option to cure.

Delivering the notice should be done as stated by the law which states that a landlord must serve the tenant personally at their address. If the whereabouts of the tenant is unknown, the notice shall be attached to the tenant’s door.

Laws C.C.P. Art. 4701

How to Write

Step 1 – On the top left side of the form, after the word “TO:” you should enter the tenant’s name and address.

Step 2 – The next paragraph will ask for the amount of unpaid rent which shall be written in on the black line. Proceed by calculating the amount of rent from the time period in which it was due.

Step 3 – Finish off the notice to quit by entering the date in which the document will be delivered followed by the landlord’s signature, address, and telephone number.
