Georgia cities and counties have housing codes in place in order to help make certain properties are kept in a safe and sanitary manner. The codes are designed to lessen the likelihood that another person will be injured when coming on to the property of an owner.
In Georgia, a landlord may not always be liable if a tenant slips, falls and suffers an injury. In some cases, the law will presume that the person who slipped and fell could have taken care to avoid that injury. The law may also find that the property owner was not liable for an accident if due care was taken to prevent slippery conditions from existing.
