Prior to the financial crises beginning in 2007 and 2008, Georgia was ranked in the top three states for mortgage fraud. Richard C. Wayne & Associates, P.C. became a leader in litigation against these mortgage fraudsters on behalf of a wide range of clients economically damaged by the fraudsters actions. MR. Wayne’s firm has ben a member of the Georgia Real Estate Fraud Prevention Coalition (GREFPAC) since that time and continues to sponsor this very important organization. Richard C. Wayne & Associates, P.C has broadened their practice into the real estate and business areas and provides both transactional and litigation services to a broad array of clientele.

Commercial & Resident Leasing
Our law firm has successfully negotiated lease terms on behalf of both landlords and tenants for commercial and residential properties. In Georgia, with rare exception, the landlord tenant relationship will be defined and governed by the specific terms of the lease executed between the parties. It is imperative that the lease address each and every aspect of the relationship including, but not limited to: the total amount due under the lease and payment terms; the lease term and any options for renewal; repair/maintenance obligations of each party; right to sublet or assign lease; remedies available on default; and rights available on condemnation. Failure to clearly identify the lease terms at the onset of the landlord tenant relationship can result in costly legal fees later if one of the undefined matters later becomes an issue. In both the commercial and residential leasing situation, an ounce of prevention is truly worth more than a pound of cure.
