Dispossessory Warrant

In Georgia, there is not a government agency with power to intervene in a landlord-tenant dispute or force one party to behave a particular way. Landlords or tenants who cannot resolve a dispute need to use the courts, either directly or through a lawyer, to enforce their legal rights. For more information the Georgia Landlord Tenant Handbook is available on the internet from the Georgia Department of Community Affairs at (www.dca.ga.gov). This Handbook is designed to provide an overview and answer common questions about Georgia residential landlord-tenant law.
