My question involves an eviction in the state of: Louisiana
I am trying to evict a comercial tenant for "Vacation or abandonment of premises". She closed her bar for about two months, but was still paying rent. I found out that the Fire and EC insurance that she is required to have would not cover the building if a fire occured,and the carrier canceled her policy.
The lease states, any notice may be given by mailing the same, by certified mail, to tenant at the premises. The lawyer knew she would not recieve the certified mail with the eviction notice if sent to premises. Even if she was open, she does not open for business untill 6:00 P.M.. I do not know if the USPS left a sticky note like the UPS people do. The letter came back as "Return to sender No mail receptacle Unable to forward" After the 30 days were up, he sent the rest of the papers to her house. Her lawyer claims she did not recieve the notice and I knew her home address. She has since opened the business, with a new policy. My lawyer seems worried, so now I am worried. What do you think the judge will do?
