Alabama Month-to-Month Lease Agreement

The Alabama Month-to-Month Lease Agreement, also known as a “tenancy at will”, is a rental contract that allows either a landlord or a tenant to terminate the lease with at least thirty (30) days’ notice. If the agreement is less than one (1) month, the parties must give each other seven (7) days’ notice. With every payment by the tenant, the lease automatically renews for an additional thirty (30) days.
