My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: Georgia
I rented my house in Georgia when I moved to Florida. I have a signed lease. The renter broke the lease abruptly, giving me a little over one week's notice. Renter consistently paid rent late and for the last full month, only paid part of the rent for that month and none of the rent for the next month in which they were there until the 9th. Renter stated they would clean the house (it is trashed). I had put the house on the market and the renter agreed to keep the house clean for showing. I found out that did not happen and the renter also removed sale sign from the yard and told my neighbors they had bought the house and it was theirs. Renter left no forwarding address, but I do know where they work. According to the lease, I can sue for remainder of the lease (10 mos. rent) as well as attorney's fees, etc. How strong of a case do I have and how should I pursue this? Can her wages be garnished?
