Alabama Rental Agreement

Alabama lease agreements allow a landlord and tenant to enter into a legal contract to occupy a property in exchange for the payment of rent. The most common type of rental contract is the 12-month fixed lease which guarantees the property to the tenant for a period of one (1) year as long as the same monthly payments are made on time (typically on the first (1st) of the month).
