A Blog about Real Estate, How it Can Be Damaged, and Disputes Over its Transfer
This blog is a personal blog written to discuss legal issues affecting Georgia property, and how it is damaged, transferred, and fought over. I write this partly to keep abreast of the law, and partly to offer a forum for my writing. In order to find content, I often analyze Georgia Supreme Court decisions. I try to update this blog as I can, but writing is a time consuming process.

Appeal of Special Master Requires Transcript
In a case decided by the Supreme Court of Georgia on September 10, 2012, KARLEN v. RELIANCE EQUITIES, LLC., Case No. S12A1056, the court held that it could not review arguments that the special master had erred in its rejection of a quiet title claim. The court found that the plaintiff advancing the claim had failed to provide a transcript of the proceedings before the special master. Without a transcript, there was no way for the court to consider the claims that the special master report should have been overturned by the trial court.
