Can a Tenant Change the Locks in Georgia?

Tenants can change their own locks in Georgia, according to the state’s landlord tenant handbook. In fact, tenants may be able to change their locks and keep all keys unless their lease prevents either action outright. Tenants who follow this course of action may be liable for damages payments if they fail to provide a key to their landlord or switch back the locks at the conclusion of their lease.
