Answers to Frequently Asked Questions
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 Coastal Georgia Apartment Association 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 legally 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.
What is the Coastal Georgia Apartment Association (CGAA) and what do you do?
The CGAA is a trade association founded in 1979 to represent the multifamily housing industry throughout the coastal region of Georgia representing professionals in the multifamily rental industry. The membership includes apartment property owners, management companies, independent rental property owners (less than 100 units), developers and suppliers to the industry in 11 counties. Our focus is legislation, education and communication for the industry.
Are all apartment communities in the Savannah area required to be members of CGAA?
CGAA membership is voluntary. Apartment communities are affiliated through the membership of their owner/manager. Most professionally managed apartment homes in metro Atlanta are currently members as they are dedicated to quality rental housing.
