COVID-19 has had a significant impact on Georgia renters.

According to a study conducted by LendingTree, Georgia is 4th among states where renters have fallen the most behind on rent payments

The team surveyed U.S. Census Bureau Household data to find the states where Americans are still struggling to make rent payments on time, where renters are most behind on payments, and where renters are the least confident they’ll be able to make next month’s payments

Among the survey findings:

• In Georgia, 22.9% of renters are behind on payments -- the 4th highest rate in the country.

• 28.8% of Georgia renters doubt they’ll be able to cover next month’s rent.

• In total, renters in Tennessee owe $377,940,014 in back rent.
