Alabama Property and Real Estate Laws

Welcome to FindLaw's online manual on Alabama property and real estate laws, written specifically to help non-attorneys make sense of the law.

In addition, you'll find information about so-called "homestead" protection laws that protect struggling homeowners who declare bankruptcy and a primer on the legal doctrine of adverse possession, which allows squatters to claim title to otherwise unused property owned by another.
