    Renter's guide to Baton Rouge, LA

    Although New Orleans may be the Louisiana city to steal all the glory, Baton Rouge – the state capital – is a vibrant, beautiful city with a rich cultural heritage to boot. Baton Rouge is the second largest city in the State, smaller than New Orleans but four times the size of Monroe LA. It serves as the state’s political center as well as a hub for research, medicine, industrial and petrochemical engineering, and even entertainment.

    Ranked as the 7th best city for first time homeowners, Baton Rouge also claimed a spot in Portfolio Magazine’s 2010 ranking of “Top 10 Places for Young Adults”. It was also named as one of the top 20 cities in the continent for economic and employment strength.

    Baton Rouge is only 3 hours and 20 minutes south of Monroe, LA and about 1 hour and 20 minutes (via I-10) from New Orleans.

    Baton Rouge’s extensive historical, economic, and cultural significance stems from its residents’ heritage, many of them descending from several African and European nations.

    Baton Rouge weather is usually beautiful, with annual high temperatures of 78.9°F in the summer and annual lows of around 57.8°F during the winter. Additionally, its location on the Istrouma Bluff in the Mississippi River Delta protects the city and its inhabitants from seasonal coastal flooding.

    Tips for renting in Baton Rouge, LA

    Landlord-tenant laws can vary from county to county. There are no laws as to a maximum or minimum security deposit, though one-month rent is the norm. Regulations change frequently. Your deposit is supposed to be returned within a month. However, if the landlord violates this provision, you must prove you attempted to have it returned within a reasonable amount of time. Evictions by State Law can occur typically within five days after the lease ends, but the lease can specify a different period.

    Consider obtaining Louisiana Renters Insurance to protect yourself when renting a place in Baton Rouge.
