Survey Article


This Article surveys case law and legislative developments in the area of real property law in Georgia during the period from June 1, 1999, to May 31, 2000. As in past surveys, the authors do not attempt to chronicle each case and statute that affects real property law. Rather, the authors selected the decisions and statutes discussed in this Article for their significance and interest to participants in the everyday practice of real estate law in this state. Several cases discussed below revisited issues from recent surveys and enlarged upon or clarified the holdings from those prior cases.

  • Title to Land
  • Easements and Restrictive Covenants
  • Purchase Contracts and Brokers
  • Foreclosures
  • Eminent Domain
  • Landlord and Tenant
