The Georgia Court of Appeals recently issued an important decision for landlords and tenants. A landlord who allows a tenant to pay less rent than due or to skip a rent payment entirely must immediately inform the tenant that the landlord is going to require strict compliance with the terms of the lease from that point forward if the landlord wants to make sure that the lease remains enforceable as written. If the landlord does not do so, this may allow the tenant to argue that the terms of the lease have been changed by the parties’ conduct.
