Alabama Standard Residential Lease Agreement

An Alabama standard residential lease agreement is a form that allows landlords to rent out a property for a fixed term, typically one (1) year. By signing a lease, the landlord receives the tenant’s contractual commitment to pay rent every month. In exchange, the tenant gains the exclusive right to live in the rental property.
