The Alabama Month to Month Rental Agreement is also called as a Residential Rental Agreement of Alabama state. It’s a legal document that allows the applicant to seek rent of a property from a particular Landlord or a business on the monthly basis.
As this document doesn’t contain any particular end date, either of the two parties can cancel the document or alter it based on their requirements with a prior Notice of 30 days. Just like any other rental agreement, Alabama works the same. It has the power of bounding both the Tenant and the Landlord to certain terms and conditions by making sure that the Tenant will pay the rent monthly and any changes that are to be made will be attached to the document as an addendum. By doing this, the Landlord will have all the rights to perform a credit check, contact the references to make sure if the tenant is eligible to rent the property.
