Expanded & Updated Formbook Now Available

Based solely on your feedback, I have “overhauled” the form book and dramatically expanded the content – a Table of Contents is attached below for your review. There are approximately 40+ Alabama-specific forms designed for the residential rental property manager or self-managing owner. I have also had these forms “peer-reviewed” by my counterpart at Legal Services Alabama. … because who better to review my forms than the tenant lawyer who will be challenging them in the future? We are currently filling the pre-orders and are taking orders for new books which will be filled on a first come, first served basis. Pricing information, as well as format options, is available by contacting (256) 562-1999. Also: if you ordered a book in the last six months, please contact the office at (256) 562 – 1999 for your complimentary upgrade.
