State Specific Question About: ALABAMA (AL)

Do you have a free template to follow so I could get a tenant's consent to a background check?

The time is right for learning your local and state laws, a landlord group should be able to get you started in the legal part of this business, one mistake can set you back months of unpaid rent trying to pry out a tenant who knows just one more rule than you.

Put "new landlord" into the search engine at the top. Lots and lots of great advice. Also, they recommend not using your full name : )

#15 on my rental application , " there is a $40 fee for background / credit check and for future collections for each adult"

applicant signs the application at the bottom of the page. This has been in effect for over 15yrs and has never been challenged in court. At the time it was added to the application the attorney i was using at the time read and approved it. Now of course everyplace and every judge seems to do things a little differently . The thing about these credit checks is that they fall under the federal laws so should be pretty much the same everywhere but you never know.
