Landlord & Tenant Law

Navigate Tenancy Laws with Our Expert Assistance

Between 2000 and 2018, landlords filed over 3.6 million eviction cases on average each year. As a result, nearly 7% of households who rent were faced with eviction lawsuits. This could have been avoided if both landlords and tenants had a better understanding of the laws surrounding their rights and responsibilities when it comes to renting and leasing property.

Landlord and tenant law is a complex and ever-changing area of law that regulates the relationship between a landlord and tenant. The law covers areas such as property rights, security deposits, lease agreements, eviction, and discrimination. While it varies from state to state, most states have adopted similar laws that provide specific protections for landlords and tenants.

Understanding Landlord and Tenant Law in Atlanta

In Atlanta, landlords are required to adhere to the Georgia Landlord-Tenant Handbook, which outlines the procedures and laws that landlords and tenants need to follow.

Tenant’s in Atlanta have certain rights and responsibilities that they must adhere to. One of the most crucial rights that tenants have is to a safe and habitable living space. This means that landlords must ensure that the property is free from health and safety hazards that could put the tenant’s health at risk.

Tenants must pay rent on time and should report any damages or maintenance issues to their landlord as soon as possible. If the landlord fails to make necessary repairs, the tenant may be able to withhold rent or take legal action to force the landlord to make the repairs.

Landlords also have the right to charge late fees if tenants are late in paying rent and can take legal action if tenants breach their lease agreement.

Legal disputes between landlords and tenants can be costly and time-consuming for both parties. If a dispute arises, it’s best to try to resolve the issue outside of court. Mediation is often recommended as it’s an affordable and efficient way to resolve disputes.

There are times when an issue between the landlord and tenant goes beyond the normal scope of communication, and legal intervention is necessary. When this happens, it is advisable to seek the services of an experienced attorney who specializes in landlord and tenant law. An attorney can help a landlord or tenant understand their legal rights and obligations, review lease agreements, provide legal representation, and assist in the eviction or termination of a lease.

Disputes can range from:

  • Illegal evictions
  • Security deposits
  • Habitability issues
  • Lease violations
  • Discrimination allegations
  • Unreasonable rent increases
  • Breach of contract
  • Unpaid rent
  • Noise violations
  • Damage to property

No matter the issue, an experienced lawyer can provide guidance to help you determine the best course of action.

Eviction Process in Georgia

To start the eviction process in Georgia for lease violations that do not include late payment of rent, you need to give the tenant a 3 Day Notice. This notice should only be given to the tenant who has conspicuously breached a significant lease provision. Examples of lease violations that could be included in a 3 Day Notice include nuisance and illegal use of the property.

If the tenant fails to comply with the notice, the landlord can file for an eviction lawsuit. In Atlanta, the court will typically hold a hearing to determine whether or not the tenant should be evicted. If the judge decides in favor of the landlord, a Writ of Possession will be issued and the tenant must vacate the property within 7 days.
