Metairie, LA asked in Civil Litigation and Contracts for Louisiana

Q: My ex boyfriend who is also on the lease refuses to move out and to pay rent. He now just got a dog which is not allowed

He is aggressive and violent as well but no domestic violence has been filed on my part. What rights legally do I have to get him out?

A: You have equal rights to the leased property without a court order based on domestic violence. Either move and notify to our landlord in writing that he has a dog and is violent, or file a protective order.
