Georgia Property and Real Estate Laws

Property and real estate laws affect renters and landlords as well as home owners (or prospective home owners). Most states, including Georgia, have "homestead" protection laws allowing property owners to protect a small parcel of property from creditors and adverse possession laws, which allow "continuous trespassers" to gain title to an otherwise abandoned piece of real estate. Additionally, Georgia law mandates that security deposits for rentals be held in escrow and that it be returned within 30 days of lease termination.
