The Georgia Landlord-Tenant Act provides an overview of the landlord-tenant relationship. Specifically, this legislation protects landlords and tenants by establishing a series of rights and duties for each party involved in a rental agreement. In turn, The Georgia Landlord-Tenant Act serves as a general framework for how disputes between landlords and tenants should generally be resolved.

Disputes between landlords and tenants can arise as to these rights and duties on either side, and often encompass issues such as the failure to pay rent, property damage, a landlord’s failure to make necessary repairs or other habitability claims. When a party to a lease fails to meet its obligations under a rental agreement, it is vital to seek professional assistance from an attorney that is well-versed in the nuances of Georgia landlord-tenant law.
