Luxe Midtown

A closing attorney I have worked with was kind enough to put this handy list together. 

Homeowners may need to provide the recording deed book and page from their Warranty Deed, proof of residence, social security number(s), driver’s license and car tag information. It varies from county to county, so check the website for more detailed information.

Fulton County – A homestead exemption is a reduction in homeowners’ property taxes. To qualify, the homeowner must apply for this exemption on or before April 1st. Once granted, this exemption is automatically renewed each year as long as they continually occupy the home under the same ownership. The home must be your legal residence for all purposes including the registration of your vehicles and the filing of your income tax. You cannot file for homestead exemption on rental property, vacant land or on more than one property. In addition to basic homestead exemption there are additional exemptions for residents age 62 and older and/or disabled and disabled veterans. You must apply for these exemptions in person.
