Renting in Gardendale, AL

Although most people own rather than rent in Gardendale, the city has plenty of houses and apartments for rent to fit different styles and budgets. Most units have one, two, or three bedrooms and are located along Main Street, thereby placing renters close to shopping and transportation options. However, rental properties in the southern parts typically have lower rents, while north Gardendale is more popular among renters due to the proximity to Birmingham and its amenities. Note that if landlords ask for more than one month's rent as a security deposit for a rental lasting more than six months, they have to pay a 5% interest rate on the excess amount. Additionally, they must also maintain a habitable rental unit throughout the lease and return the security deposit within 30 days of terminating the lease. In turn, renters are usually responsible for paying the utilities and rent at the beginning of the month (unless the lease states otherwise).
