Alabama Lease Agreement Templates

Alabama lease agreements are used to create a binding lease contract between a landlord and a tenant. The contract ensures that the tenant will pay a monthly fee in exchange for access to a livable property. The document has full legal justification and can be used for leverage if either the tenant or landlord does not hold up their side of the agreement.

Rental Application – Recommended being used by a landlord to verify a tenant’s credit and employment.
