Real Estate Law

When dealing with real property in Alabama, it is imperative to understand and follow the regulations governed by the state’s real estate law. This law controls different aspects related to real estate, such as buying, selling, leasing, and financing of the property.

However, it’s not limited to these activities only and covers several other matters, including property boundaries, zoning regulations, eminent domain, and landlord-tenant disputes.

If you’re a landlord or tenant in Alabama, you must comply with the Alabama Uniform Residential Landlord and Tenant Act (URLTA). Under this act, landlords and tenants have certain rights and obligations that must be fulfilled during rental transactions.

It is important to note that real estate agents operating within Alabama must hold a valid license to carry out transactions.

Along with this, there are specific disclosure requirements when selling a property in Alabama, which must be met to carry out any property transfers legally.
