New Orleans, LA asked in Estate Planning, Landlord - Tenant and Probate for Louisiana

Q: What are my rights re: succession eviction and disability in the State of Louisiana?

84 yo mother died in December 2018 and did not leave a will - although it was very well known within the family what her intentions were. I had a massive brain bleed (stroke) 4years ago. She wanted me to remain in her house and be financially protected. Through succession of Mom’s estate, the Executrix is threatening me with eviction in 3 months. No income other than Disability. What can I do?

A: Generally, an heir cannot be evicted from a house they are in possession of since they are a co-owner. You need a lawyer to make sure your rights are protected from an unauthorized eviction.
