Alabama law does not specify how you should send a request for approval, so stick with common sense.
What to Send
Prepare as much information on your situation and your proposed subtenant as possible. We've created this sample sublet request letter that you can customize and send to your landlord. Send this note along with a copy of your sublet agreement and evidence that you've already screened them.
How to Send It
Sent this along with your sublet agreement to your landlord, using whichever means of communication you usually use to get in touch with them. Ask them to sign the sublet agreement. Both you and your subtenant should have a copy of the signed lease.
