A Brief Guide to Georgia Evictions

November 30, 2020

The Book

“A Brief Guide to Georgia Evictions” is a plain-English “how-to” guide, written for non-lawyer landlords and lawyers who do not typically specialize in landlord-tenant law. Written by an experienced lawyer with more than a decade of experience in this area of the law as both litigator and mediator, this brief yet information-packed book complements, rather than replaces, the many available legal treatises on the subject. The reader is guided through the entire “dispossessory” (eviction) process, beginning with concerns to be addressed before suit is even filed, and continuing throughout all phases of litigation, including trial, mediation, appeals, and the eviction process itself. The book is also liberally sprinkled with practice pointers and helpful hints designed to maximize the landlord’s potential for success.

Free Resources

A number of forms are provided in the book for the reader’s convenience. Copies of the same forms are provided here, for free, for your convenience. Each document is a plain-text file unless otherwise indicated. Use or adaptation of a particular form is “at your own risk” and shall not be deemed advisable or recommended merely by its inclusion in the book or on this web site. If you have questions whether a particular form, instrument, or other document is appropriate for any given situation, you should consult with a qualified attorney.

I’ve also created a one-page checklist that spells out the dispossessory process, which you may find useful.
