 Before you get started putting all kinds of covenants in your Louisiana land for sale, first ask what you are trying to accomplish and why. If this Louisiana land for sale is personal to you like a parcel adjoined to your home site, you will want several restrictions for that peace of mind. Some typical restrictions for your Louisiana land for sale would be the above described property shall be limited to residential use and no commercial establishment shall be operated thereon. This could save your home values if you are selling lets say 10 acres by your house it would keep the buyer from buying your land and then putting a bar or restaurant next door to your home. Another common covenant for Louisiana land for sale is any dwelling constructed on the above described property shall contain a minimum of 1,800 square feet of heated and cooled living area and not less than a minimum roof pitch of eight (8) and (12) and shall be completed within 12 months from date construction commenced.


These additional restrictions for your Louisiana land for sale will serve to protect your land in several ways, first if you have a 2,500 square foot house you donít want anybody building a very odd shaped home that looks like the little shop of horrors right next to you and making your land values go down.

One last Louisiana land for sale covenant will protect your property in a few ways. No inoperative motor vehicles or junk of any kind shall be allowed to be kept on the property, and the property shall be kept orderly at all times. If you are in a small subdivision or if your house is in close to the land you want to sell, this will keep your neighbor from putting up a hog wire fence next to your $ 500,000.00 house and have a pig farm next door to you.


All these and the dozens more land covenant and restrictions you can have your attorney put in your deed will help deter a bad neighbor that we have all heard about but when it comes down to it you could still end up in court with a bad neighbor.
