The Georgia notice to pay or quit, according to § 44-7-50, is a notice that is not required to be given by the landlord to the tenant. Rather it is given out of good intentions to inform the lessee that they are behind on their payment and if they do not act that they may be liable to an eviction lawsuit (forcible entry and detainer). It is recommended that the tenant contact and pay the landlord before this type of action is filed.
