If my landlord is trying to evict me or push me so far as to I have to be out this Sunday at midnight can I record our conversation we’re going to have in the morning without telling her about it and That I have paid her Every months rent except December but she wouldn’t except that but still tried to pay her through text and calls which she never answered Basically she’s coming down tomorrow morning we’re talking she’s counter suing me for back rent of two months 750 per month can I record without her knowing and it be used in court being that we are in Alabama
Alabama is a one party consent state. As long as one party to the conversation consents to the recording, then it is not a violation of the law. I would, however, be more concerned with the wrongful eviction. What is your landlord doing to wrongfully remove you from the residence? How is the landlord pushing you illegally to be out by Sunday? More information would be helpful. A recording will not do any good if it does not evidence wrongdoing. I wish you the best.
