Trust holds about 7 properties. The landlord (trustee?) may be taking to court and we are looking to see if they are exempt from some Ga landlord-tenants laws. Thank You.
§ 44-7-36. Certain rental units exempt from article
Code Sections 44-7-31, 44-7-32, 44-7-33, and 44-7-35 shall not apply to rental units which are owned by a natural person if such natural person, his or her spouse, and his or her minor children collectively own ten or fewer rental units; provided, however, that this exemption does not apply to units for which management, including rent collection, is performed by third persons, natural or otherwise, for a fee.
That is an interesting question. If I am betting; I bet yes. If you want an attorney to look at case law to determine if this issue has been covered by GA courts, I would expect to be charged.
