While not generally recognized by the legal community as an area of practice, “Apartment Management Law” refers to a broad spectrum of state and federal laws that govern the management operations of apartment communities. Our office sometimes refers to it as “Apartment Law.”

Fowler, Hein, Cheatwood & Williams, P.A. has extensive experience representing and protecting the business interests of our clients.  We provide sound legal strategies and information that help apartment communities meet their management goals and comply with a vast array of laws which affect how they do business.

The Georgia Apartment Law Book (Robert P. Hein, 2009, published online by the Georgia Apartment Association) contains over 130 articles discussing the laws applicable to owning and running a multifamily community in Georgia.  The articles cover topics such as affordable housing programs, housing discrimination, marketing and advertising, credit screening, leases, landlord tenant laws, dispossessory cases (evictions), collection and credit, employment, environmental, life safety and premises liability, insurance and taxes, utilities, and real estate licensing.

We help our clients understand their rights and responsibilities and guide them in dealing with and responding to their residents.

As part of our firm’s outreach we provide training, seminars, and materials on housing discrimination, landlord and tenant law, contractual meaning of lease provisions, and premises liability.
