Currently the Parish Attorney states that neither real estate agents, brokers, property managers, nor realtors come under their jurisdiction to litigate and assess penalties. Zoning violations are based on use, what is permitted and not permitted. The realtors, etc., are not actually committing the usage violation. There is currently no law which prohibits acting as an agent for a transaction that ultimately results in a use violation.
Fines of up to $500 are the existing penalties, and/or six months in jail at the discretion of the judge.
