    Before signing a lease first ask other tenants what their experiences are with that property. You can save yourself a lot of grief just talking to other tenants and neighbors.

  2. Dj Migos says:

    The landlord at 2131 cornerstone lane Marietta ga likes to scam people by doing a backdoor eviction after they pay her. Stay away from this property

    Georgia tenants have a constitutional right to a jury trial.See, Hill vs. Levenson, Ga. Supreme Court (1989)

    Showed up here due to having issues with the complex in which I currently reside. These two ladies are not addressing the true issues between landlord/tennant contracts. You can tell the interviewer is a homeowner and not directly effected with issues of apartment renters. Most valuable statement made during this convo is that tenants have very little rights in Ga. This needs to change!! Apartment complexes are getting away with robbery and they know there is no penalty. Tenants have to where to turn for assistance and are stuck with leases that complexes are not abiding by.
