An Alabama rental application is completed by an applicant seeking to rent residential space in the hopes of being approved by the landlord. The applicant will include their employment information, income, rental history, and any other necessary background information. By completing the application form, the applicant consents to any applicable background check the landlord wishes to have carried out. This review process normally takes between twenty-four (24) and seventy-two (72) hours and requires the tenant to pay a non-refundable fee (may be included in the application fee).
