Lawyer Says Some Alabama Landlords are Violating Stay-at-Home Order
When Alabama Governor Kay Ivey issued a stay-at-home order for the state, it came with a temporary halt on evictions. However, a Huntsville-based lawyer says she’s been getting calls from tenants saying their landlords are trying to kick them out.
Holly Ray is the managing attorney for Legal Services Alabama-Huntsville. She says her office has been inundated with tenants confused over their rights: “We still have landlords who think the law doesn’t apply to them and they’re still telling people to get out immediately."
