Legal Information: Louisiana
What happens if my landlord included a section in my lease saying that I cannot end my lease early?
It would be illegal for your landlord to include a term in your lease that claims to prevent this type of early termination. If the landlord has done so, it would be unenforceable, which means the judge would refuse to follow it.1
