Georgia law requires that homeowners and retailers exercise reasonable care to maintain safe properties for any "invitee" who is approaching, exiting or present on the property.

If you have suffered a serious injury on someone else's property, a premises liability attorney at the Law Offices of Shane Smith can review your accident and injuries to determine if you have a reasonable case against the property owner involved.

Tenants in the 19 Washington Arms apartments were relocated or had to find other places to live after the buildings were condemned. The buildings had no heat and at various times the water was cut off and units had no hot water.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the five-building complex switched ownership through receivership approximately a year before it was condemned. The change in ownership required a city inspection in order to maintain a certificate of occupancy. It was at the inspection that a broken furnace was identified and the new owners were given time to have it fixed. When it was not fixed the tenants were notified that the units were "unfit for human habitation."
