Navigating Technical Aspects of Commercial Dispossessory Proceedings, Suits for Rent, and Other Landlord-Tenant Disputes

Dispossessory proceedings in Georgia are a statutory remedy for landlords seeking possession of their premises from defaulting tenants. Although the proceedings are simplified, they become more complex when a commercial lease is involved. Our attorneys know how to read your lease to ensure compliance with all notice provisions, acceleration provisions, etc. We can use the dispossessory procedures not only to regain possession of the commercial premises but to obtain judgment against the defaulting tenant and its guarantors. If the landlord does not want to evict, our commercial lease litigators have experience designing complex workout arrangements between landlords and tenants, including lease termination agreements, consent orders, and lease modifications and amendments.

Furthermore, Stokes Carmichael & Ernst LLP attorneys are experienced in handling commercial lease disputes in Bankruptcy Court. Obtaining relief from the automatic stay in Bankruptcy, compelling the Bankruptcy estate to make post-petition rent payments, and compelling the bankrupt tenant to assume or reject the lease within the time parameters set forth in the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.
