An Alabama seven (7) day notice to quit form allows a landlord to legally notify a lessee of an issue with the lease agreement between the parties. If curable, the tenant will have the seven (7) day time period to fix the issue or vacate the property. If the tenant opts to vacate they will still be legally and financially liable to fulfill the terms of the agreement. This means that the remaining rent payments, along with any other obligations, may be pursued by the landlord.

LawsAla. Code 1975 § 35-9A-421(a)

There are two (2) types of this notice;

  1. Curable – Usually issued for first-time offenses, this type allows the tenant to fix the issue within the seven (7) day time-frame and remain in good standing under the lease.
  2. Incurable – The lessee must move out of the property within the seven (7) day period if the tenant has broken the lease two (2) times within a twelve (12) month period and states or has conducted one of the following: (1) Possession or use of illegal drugs in the dwelling unit or in the common areas.
