A lawsuit over the rightful ownership of a piece of property in Arkansas has made national headlines because it involves Josh Duggar, the well-known former star of the reality TV show "19 Kids and Counting." It's a spectacular example of how not to handle a quiet title action.
Real estate can be a complex industry. If you own property, there could be a chance that you'll end up in a dispute with someone over any number of reasons.
Whether it's a leaky faucet that's driving you crazy and increasing your water bill or a broken air conditioner that's making you miserable in the heat, you rely on your landlord to make the repairs. After all, that's one of the biggest benefits of being a renter, right?

Landlords in Georgia and throughout the country could be making key mistakes that might result in lost rent or costly legal fees. Ideally, landlords will make any repairs that allow a tenant access to clean water, a roof that doesn't leak and an electrical system that functions properly. If a landlord doesn't make a critical repair in a timely manner, a tenant may have the right to move out or pay someone to fix the issue.
Construction defects that Georgia residents may find in residential or commercial buildings usually refer to a deficiency in the way the building was designed, planned, inspected or constructed. It could mean that the building did not perform to a reasonable degree in the manner that it was intended by the buyer.
