This court granted certiorari to review the ruling of the Court of Appeals that a writ of possession is void ab initio where the oath required by Code Ann. 67-702 is made before a notary public but later properly verified by amendment.
The improper verification of the petition was an amendable defect under the Civil Practice Act, and the Court of Appeals erred in holding the petition void ab initio. Anything to the contrary in Jordan v. Ford Motor Credit Co., 141 Ga. App. 280 (233 SE2d 256) (1977) is specifically disapproved and will not be followed.
