Alabama Month-to-Month Rental Agreement
An Alabama month-to-month rental agreement is a contract that gives the landlord and tenant the ability to terminate or cancel within thirty (30) days. This is common for short-term tenants that want the ability to cancel without being locked into a fixed long-term agreement. Either party may cancel as they deem necessary and may do so without cause or reason. The agreement is required to follow all State landlord and eviction laws.
Rent Increase (§ 35-9A-161) – The landlord can only increase the rent with notice that is equivalent in length to the payment period (week-to-week is seven days, month-to-month is thirty days).
Minimum Termination Notice (§ 35-9A-441) – If the tenant is week-to-week, it’s 7 days, if the tenant is month-to-month it’s 30 days.
