How much does it cost to evict a tenant in birmingham Alabama?

Hey everybody. Matthew Whitaker here doing “Questions Owners Ask.”

Today’s question is, “How much does it cost to evict a tenant in Birmingham, Alabama?”

The first thing you need to know is,

If you’re an LLC, it’s going to cost you a little bit more.

The reason it costs you more in Birmingham is because you’re required to use an attorney to file an eviction if you’re a company, or I guess if you’re incorporated.

Filing fees for an eviction range between 200 and 300 bucks.

The attorney’s fees just depend on what the attorneys cost. Typically an attorney will charge like a flat fee for an eviction.

What you want to make sure is that you get an attorney that understands, you know, Birmingham, Alabama eviction laws, state of Alabama eviction laws, landlord-tenant law of Alabama, and you don’t want to just use any attorney to do this.

A lot of people think it’s really easy, it’s really not.

I mean, you can have a lot of things that will upset that and will make that process drag out a long time.

So that’s it. How much does an eviction cost in Birmingham, Alabama?
