The law states that
one month’s rent is the most security a landlord may require.
The Alabama Security Deposit Limit does not include
pet deposits, deposits to cover tenant’s alterations, and deposits to
cover tenant activities that pose "increased liability risks".
This is where a credit report may come into play.
