Georgia Eviction

  • Landlords and tenants each have rights and responsibilities.
    • Landlords must make repairs and keep the property in good condition.
    • Tenants must pay rent and follow other terms of the lease. 
  • A landlord can ask for a court order to evict a tenant if the tenant breaks the terms of the lease (like not paying rent).
  • Landlords may not evict a tenant without a court order
