Property Management requirements in Louisiana
Must Louisiana property management companies have a real estate broker's license?
YES. Key components of property management (managing, renting and leasing) are considered real estate activities under existing Louisiana real estate licensing laws. If someone is paid to lease, rent, list, procure prospects or negotiate, assist, or offer to perform any of those acts, he or she will need a broker's license.
Are there any exceptions to the requirement that a Louisiana property manager have a broker's license?
Yes. For example, assisting in the performance of property management functions by carrying out administrative, clerical or maintenance tasks does not require a real estate license.
Before hiring a property manager to manage your Louisiana rental property, you should always check that he or she is licensed appropriately. You can check the license status of Louisiana property managers and the Louisiana Real Estate Commission's License Search webpage.
Must Louisiana community association managers have a real estate broker's license?
NO. A broker's license is not required to manage community associations or condo associations in Louisiana.
