This is the typically the first eviction notice used by an Alabama landlord when a tenant violates a material obligation of the lease agreement or tenancy.
This notice informs the tenant of what the problem is and that they must remedy the violation within seven days or vacate. If the tenant then fails act after receiving this notice, the tenancy terminates and the landlord may file an eviction lawsuit to seek the forcible removal of the tenant.
If the tenant corrects the problem before the seven days are up, then the landlord would generally not follow through with an eviction filing.
