Dispossession/Eviction of a Tenant

In Georgia, evictions lawsuits, also called dispossessory proceedings, are governed by the landlord and tenant chapter of the Georgia Code. While a landlord may evict a tenant for not paying rent or for violating a portion of the lease or rental agreement, there are many tenant rights that cannot be neglected or abused. Landlords are required to go through certain procedures in order to evict a tenant, however at the time that this is written, the laws in Georgia do not provide clear details. Because of this, landlords often find themselves in difficult legal disputes with tenants.
