Louisiana Property and Real Estate Laws

Home is where the heart is. And there are specific Bayou State laws that apply to our homes and our land. For instance, while there are certain protections to help you keep your homestead in case you go bankrupt, there are also laws that might allow a trespasser to gain legal title to your land. And if you're either a landlord or a tenant, a multitude of statutes apply to your situation. The links below provide Louisiana-specific laws on property and real estate topics -- including homestead protections, the landlord-tenant relationship, and how property ownership can be gained through a process called adverse possession.
