A Georgia landlord’s notice to enter lets a tenant know that the landlord will be coming into an occupied dwelling for some particular purpose. Georgia law does not establish for what purposes a landlord may enter or how much notice is required, leaving landlords and tenants to decide these issues in a lease. If terms are specified in the tenant’s lease, follow those; if not, some practitioners recommend providing at least twenty-four (24) hours’ notice.
