A: In Alabama, after a roommate is evicted, the landlord must follow state laws regarding the handling of the evicted tenant's property. Typically, the landlord must provide the tenant with a notice, specifying a reasonable period (often around 14 to 30 days) to collect their belongings. If the property is not claimed within this timeframe, the landlord may dispose of the items as deemed appropriate by state law. It's important for you to coordinate with your landlord on this matter to ensure that any action taken regarding the evicted roommate's property is legally compliant.
