The Act removes the Georgia Real Estate Commission (Commission) as administrator of the Georgia Land Sales Act (GLSA) and repeals the provision relating to fees and expenses, enforcement and sanctioning authority, and immunity of the Commission. The Act vests enforcement of the GLSA in the Attorney General or the district attorney. The Act repeals certain registration requirements of the GLSA, provides for mandatory use of the property reports in sales of subdivided land, and requires subdividers to keep business records. Furthermore, the Act changes the provisions of the GLSA pertaining to hearings and judicial review, cease and desist orders, and consent to service as it relates to actions by the Commission.
