Frequently Asked Questions
Q. I am a resident at an apartment community. Can you help me with an issue/complaint and can you give me a copy of my lease?
The Apartment Association of Greater Augusta is a trade organization for companies that own and manage apartment communities and affiliated companies that provide products or services to the apartment industry. We are unable to answer questions from residents or respond to any inquiries. If you are having a legal issue, we recommend you contact an attorney who specializes in landlord-tenant law in Georgia. While you are entitled to a copy of your lease, we do not have copies, and you will need to ask your apartment community for a copy if you did not receive one when you signed it originally.
