Tenancy status in Condominium in Georgia
October 5, 2011 7:38 AM Subscribe
I rent an apartment in a building with a condo association in Atlanta, GA. My lease was not registered by my landlord with the building condo association. Does this impact my legal tenancy status?
I moved into an apartment this summer in a high-rise. I have a signed year-long lease for the unit. After moving in I learned that my landlord (the owner of the condo unit, one of hundreds of owners in the building) had not registered the lease with the condo association. My landlord now would like to break my lease (he has found another potential tenant he believes will pay 3x what I am paying).
Does the fact that my lease is not registered with the condo management association impact my legal tenancy status in Atlanta, Georgia at all? I'd like to approach the condo association directly, as I am uncomfortable not having my lease on file with the building, but am not sure if this will further endanger my tenancy.
(I know you are not my lawyers. I contacted the free legal aid hotline last week with no response, and the free legal aid clinic told me they take cases but don't answer individual questions. Thanks!)
