My Landlord Removed All My Possessions And Changed The Locks On The Apartment. He Did Not Give Me Any Warning.

Self help evictions, including changing the locks, are illegal under Georgia Landlord Tenant law. You may take action against the landlord for any damages you suffer due to his wrongful conduct. It is best that this type of action be pursued with the assistance of a legal representative. If you can not obtain an attorney, you can file a claim in the magistrate court of the county where the landlord is located.
