Evicting Tenants During the Holidays in Metro Atlanta

Mike Nelson - Tuesday, December 4, 2018


Below is a list of the dates when each of these counties WILL NOT be executing any “put outs”.   And while these are the official dates, we have found that it is very difficult to get a tenant evicted from the property after 12/15.  And do you want to be the landlord that is putting a tenant out right before Christmas?

Optional Technique:

Generally speaking, a landlord in Georgia should not accept a partial payment of the rent when offered by the tenant.  To do so would mean that, if heard before a judge, any late fee that was due is waived by your accepting the payment AND you should not file for eviction within the same calendar month that you accepted a payment.  The one exception to that practice would be when December rent is not paid in full.

If your tenant has not paid December rent, and can not pay any December rent, then file for the Dispossessory warrant and follow thru on the process.  However, if your tenant can pay most of the rent, then consider accepting the partial payment.  If the tenant does not come thru with the remaining amount due then you can include that unpaid amount with the January rent due and file for the Dispossessory warrant in January.

Your goal should be to maximize your return on investment.  Getting most of the rent, then evicting in January can net you more in receipts since filing in December is likely to result in a January eviction anyway.  And you may sleep better knowing you did not evict someone at Christmas.
