The Alabama Uniform Residential Landlord and Tenant Act of 2007 governs the relationship between landlords and residential tenants. The act provides protection for tenants against unlivable conditions and unreasonable lease provisions, while also adequately protecting the valuable property rights of the landlords. The act further protects landlords against tenants who repeatedly violate lease provisions and fail to pay rent so that landlords are allowed to recover possession of their property in a more reasonable time.
