Alabama  Security Deposits

 Other States

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.
