If the tenant pays the default rent can landlord still terminate the lease?
I was unable to pay my rent for the last two months. My landlord has sent me a notice of termination of the rental agreement. If I pay all the default rent payment within the time specified in the notice (7days), will the landlord still be entitled to terminate the rental agreement?01/02/2017 | Category: Landlord Ten... » Lease Termin... | State: Alabama | #29256
Code of Ala. § 35-9A-421reads:
“(b) If rent is unpaid when due, the landlord may deliver a written notice to terminate the lease to the tenant specifying the amount of rent and any late fees owed to remedy the breach and that the rental agreement will terminate upon a date not less than seven days after receipt of the notice. If the breach is not remedied within the seven days, the rental agreement shall terminate.”
If you pay the default rent payment within 7 days as specified in the notice, the landlord may not be entitled to terminate the rental agreement.
