Georgia Residential Lease Agreement
The Georgia residential lease is the most popular type of lease agreement and typically serves property owners who are looking to lease out their property for one (1) year to an ordinary tenant. For the lease to go into effect, both the landlord and tenant will have to agree on the terms and conditions of the terms and sign the contract.
There is typically a fee that the tenant will have to pay if he or she terminates the lease before the end of the contract, which will be agreed upon before the beginning of the lease. It is also recommended that the landlord asks the possible tenant to fill out a rental application so the landlord can view the applying tenant’s criminal, employment, credit, and rental history, to gain a good perspective on the tenants trustworthiness and character.
