Failure to give written notice to pay or vacate

In Georgia, if I failed to give my tenant written notice to pay late rent or give up premises, can that cause my eviction proceeding to be lost?  Can the defendant say they never received notice until they were served and cause the hearing to be re-heard or dismissed?

Before contacting the court to initiate eviction proceedings, the landlord should read the lease and be familiar with its provisions and comply with its terms regarding notice and termination. Once the terms of the lease have been followed, Georgia law requires a landlord to go through court to remove a tenant. First, before going to court, the landlord must demand that the tenant immediately give up possession and vacate. This demand is best made in writing but can be made verbally.
