Introduction

Eviction is a process by which a landlord removes a tenant from a rental property. In Alabama, landlords must follow the rules and regulations set out by the Alabama Landlord Tenant Act when evicting a tenant. This blog post will provide an overview of the eviction process in Alabama.

Notice to Quit

The first step in the eviction process in Alabama is for the landlord to give the tenant a written Notice to Quit. This notice must be served to the tenant at least seven days prior to the date of the eviction complaint. The notice must state the reason for the eviction and allow the tenant time to correct the issue or vacate the property.

Filing an Eviction Complaint

If the tenant does not correct the issue or vacate the property within the seven-day period, the landlord can then file an eviction complaint with the court. This complaint must include the reason for the eviction and a copy of the Notice to Quit. The court will then issue a summons to the tenant.

Court Hearing

The tenant must then appear in court on the date indicated in the summons. At this hearing, the judge will hear both sides of the case and determine if the tenant should be evicted. If the judge decides in favor of the landlord, the tenant will be ordered to vacate the property within a certain amount of time.

Conclusion

Eviction is a complicated process in Alabama and landlords must follow the rules and regulations set out by the Alabama Landlord Tenant Act. This blog post provided an overview of the eviction process, from the Notice to Quit to the court hearing.
