Real Estate in Louisiana

The disclosure form required by the Louisiana Real Estate Commission is a bit more comprehensive than found in most other states. For example, the section titled "Other" in the disclosure portion must be used to reveal any known defects that are not covered by the remaining sections. If the seller knows of a defect and does not reveal that defect because the disclosure form does not specifically ask about that defect, then the seller could face fines and other forms of punishment when the defect is discovered.

An interesting aspect about the Louisiana disclosure forms that is not found in many other states is the requirement to inform a potential buyer of previous illegal activity on the property. Specifically, the seller must inform the buyer if there was even an illegal drug manufacturing laboratory on the property during the time that the seller owned the property. Since the manufacturing of illegal drugs can leave behind dangerous equipment and materials, this requirement makes sense in protecting a potential buyer. The seller must also disclose if the property has experienced any problems due to mining activities in the local area, which includes any ground cavities created by excess ground water used in the mining process.
