Tenants and landlords alike may have questions about the rights and responsibilities regarding the entry to a rental unit. In Georgia, landlords must give notice (usually 24 hours) before entering a rented property, except in emergencies.

What are the legal requirements for a valid real estate contract in Georgia?

Prospective buyers and sellers often inquire about the necessary elements for a legally binding real estate contract.

What are the laws surrounding zoning and land use in Georgia?

Property owners, developers and potential buyers often inquire about zoning regulations, which determine how land can be used and what structures can be built on a property. Questions may pertain to obtaining variances, rezoning property, complying with local ordinances and the impact of zoning on property value and usage. Zoning and land use laws are particularly localized and can vary by municipality or county within Georgia. It’s important for anyone dealing with land use issues to understand the specific regulations that apply to their area and situation.
