This Article surveys developments in Georgia real property law between June 1, 2020 and May 31, 2021. Real property law is unique in that it touches nearly every other facet of the law in some way. For instance, family law often intersects with real property law in cases of divorce. Contract law is often at the root of any real property sales or agreements—and also comes into play with issues of landlord-tenant disputes and evictions. Since real property can be, and often is, the largest asset people leave behind when they pass away, real property law certainly impacts estate law. Environmental law includes questions of land use and resource management. Real property law is highly impactful and interesting, even for those who do not practice in the area.
