Georgia Homestead Laws
Homestead laws allow homeowners (and other property owners) to declare a portion of their real property as a "homestead" that cannot be taken by creditors. These laws are intended to prevent homelessness that may result from tough economic conditions, such as a foreclosure. Georgia homestead laws allow creditors to exempt up to $10,000 worth of their home under certain conditions.
