In 501 Rue Decatur, L.L.C. v. VTM Props., LLC, 2014 La. App. LEXIS 1338, 23 (La.App. 4 Cir. May 21, 2014), the Louisiana Fourth Circuit Court of Appeal, determined that accepting payments of rent for over one (1) year after a breach of commercial lease agreement due to the lessee’s failure to pay property taxes precluded the lessor from seeking an eviction. This decision reinforces Louisiana’s long standing judicial rule that accepting rent after a breach of lease occurs constitutes a ratification of the lease agreement.
