All molecules have LDFs because an LDF is just a weak, short-range electrostatic force between uncharged molecules, arising from the interaction of transient electric dipole moments. Any molecule, for example a nonpolar covalent molecule with normally no charge, can have its electrons positioned in such a way that it creates a temporary dipole moment. These cause the short-range LDFs to attract molecules to each other, but these forces are very weak and can be easily broken.
