Alabama Month to Month Rental Agreement

Alabama Month to Month Rental Agreement is a simple contract between a landlord and a tenant that renews itself month after month upon payment of the monthly rent. Therefore, this type of lease does not have a natural termination date. However, a landlord or a tenant can revoke such lease by sending a 30-day certified written termination notice to the other party in line with § 35-9A-441 of the Alabama Code. Please download and prepare this form for leasing a residential property. It is ideal that all signing parties prepare this form together as various inputs are required from them. Alabama Code Section 35-9A-201 mandates that the landlord must accept one month rent towards security deposit. Please understand the significance of the term Tenancy At Will prior to signing and entering the lease.

Points to Remember

  1. Only one month rent towards security deposit

  3. Consideration of pet deposit if any upon prior permission from the landlord
