Good evening,
I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. I am a GA licensed attorney.
Under the laws of the state of GA, a commercial lease may provide for the eviction of a tenant without the necessity of filing an eviction proceeding. However, if such a provision is not included in a written lease, signed by you and the landlord, then your landlord must use the file suit to evict you from the premises.
