The Alabama Tenants’ Handbook

More than 500,000 Alabama households live in rental housing. For a long time, there was no state law protecting the rights of renters. As of January 1, 2007, it’s a different story. We now have the Alabama Landlord-Tenant Law to help make sure every rental house and apartment is a decent place to live.

This handbook tells you what’s in the landlord-tenant law, along with some basic information for renters.
