    Welcome to the Louisiana Law Forums. You can read the discussions here, but you must register before you can post or reply to a post. This is necessary to keep the spam to a minimum. Registration just takes a couple of minutes. You sign up and an email is sent to you with a link to activate your registration.
    This site is not a replacement for competent legal advice from a Louisiana licensed attorney. Some of the participants are lawyers, but most discussions are by non-lawyers who share their experiences with the legal system. Their opinions are their own and should not be considered legal advice.
    Here are some tips:
    Please make sure you are posting in the right forum. If your question has to do with divorce, for example, make sure you are in the Family Law Forum before you click “New Topic” to start your question or “Reply” if you want to post in a current discussion. If you post in the wrong forum, help will be delayed and we will have to move your post to the proper place.
    Please do not post in caps. PEOPLE WHO ASK QUESTIONS IN ALL CAPS COME ACROSS AS SHOUTING and it is hard to read. Don’t you agree?
    We do not give legal advice. Keep in mind that this forum is not intended to replace competent (or even incompetent) legal advice from a lawyer. Most of our contributors try to be helpful, but they are not necessarily lawyers and are basing their opinions on their own life experiences.
    Do not ask questions by email or private message Any direct and non-public communication opens the door to claim a lawyer-client relationship has been created. All discussions must take place in the public forums with the clear understanding that we are exchanging information, not giving legal advice.
    Make sure you sign in once you register.  We have many spammers that get through the usual captcha and other ways used to stop spamming. We get about 15 people a day who register but then do not continue on to visit the site. If a new user has never visited the site, we assume they are a spammer and delete them.

    How can one search topics or tags within a Forum?

    I never noticed before, but you can only apparently search the Forums from the main Forum page, not from within individual forums. I will look into whether that can be changed.

    What rights does an incarcerated tenant have to obtain personal belongings from the rental property? And does the landlord have the right to rent the place with the previous tenants belongings still there? He was r he only person renting monthly & was arrested the last week of the month, before the next month rent due.

    This should be in the Real Estate Forum and was overlooked. Anyway…

    A landlord in general terms has a lien over property on the premises to insure payment of the rent.

    Now, it can get complicated at this point.

    Did anyone attempt to clear out the apartment before the rent was due? The proper procedure for the landlord is to get a court order authorizing him to seize property on the premises. Most people do not have the money to go the proper route. If the landlord did not go the proper route, then he could be liable in damages. However, that gets back to whether anyone has the money to go to court.
