Even before the arrival of the Europeans in the 16th century, archeological evidence suggests that present day Alabama was occupied by a myriad of different indigenous peoples and cultures for at least several thousands of years. One of those indigenous tribes that lived here from around 1000 to 1600 AD was called the agrarian Mississippi culture. Some of the more contemporary Native American tribes that occupied portions of the state included the Iroquoian-speaking Cherokee tribe, and also the Muskogean-based Creek, Alibamu, Choctaw, Koasati, and Chickasaw tribes.
Aside from the Spaniard Hernando De Soto first passing through the state on one of his expeditions in 1540, the first Europeans to settle the area were the French in 1702 who set down their first roots in the modern day Mobile area. The area was immediately annexed by France into the vast La Louisiane territory which was also referred to as New France. However, when France lost the French and Indian War to Great Britain, in 1763, the area became part of British West Florida for the next 20 years. Then, once England lost the American Revolutionary War, the territory was divided up between Spain and the United States for the next 30 years. Then, a few years after the surrender of the Spanish to the US in 1813, the US Congress named the area a Territory in 1817.
This act by Congress was very short-lived because on December 14, 1819, Alabama officially became the 22nd state admitted to the Union with a population of only about 125,000 people. Named after the Alibamu people, it is the 30th largest state by area with 52,419 square miles and the 24th largest in population with nearly 5 million people calling it home. Its official state colors are red and white and it is also known as The Cotton State, Yellowhammer State, and Heart of Dixie and goes by a state motto of Audemus Jura Nostra Defendere, which means “We dare defend our rights” in Latin.
Following suit with its southern brethren, Ala. officially succeeded from the USA on January 11, 1861, and temporarily became an independent republic until it joined the Confederacy a few days later. Of course, once the Civil War ended with Robert E Lee’s surrender to Ulysses S Grant on April 9, 1865, it rejoined the USA and has remained a state ever since.
Located in the Deep South, its five immediate neighbors are; Mississippi, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, and the Gulf of Mexico. About 60% of the state is a gentle plain, and the other 40% is mountainous on account of it being part of the Great Appalachian Valley. Approximately 3.2% of the State’s land is covered by water with one of its waterways is considered as one of the longest navigable waterways in the US coming in at 1300 miles long.
The beauty of of this region is boosted by its Flora and Fauna as it is one of those states which boasts of diversity in its species. Its habitats which include Appalachian plateau, Canebrake, Gulf of Mexico and Tennessee Valley are among the most habitable in the United States. The subtropical forests have the some of the best pine forests and spermatophyte and pteridophyte plant species. This state has a lot of indigenous animal species that with about 93 different types of reptiles, 62 mammals, 73 amphibians, 420 birds and around 307 native species of freshwater fish. To get a glimpse of this beauty, all you need to do is visit any of the beautiful parks like the Little River Canyon National Preserve near Fort Payne and the picturesque William Bankhead National Forest a little north of Jasper.

The city of Montgomery was incorporated in 1819, and it later became the state capital in 1846. Located on the banks of the Alabama River, this city also serves as the county seat of its namesake. It currently ranks as the 115th largest US city with over 205,000 people. For a few months, it also served as the first capital of the Confederate States of America. The First White House of the Confederacy was preserved as a museum, and here you can see the actual residence of the first and only Confederate President, Jefferson Davis, who lived here for a few short months in 1861 before the moving of the Confederate capital to Richmond, Virginia.
Not only is Montgomery rich in Confederate history, but it was also part of the epicenter for some major events in the Civil Rights Movement in the 1950's and 60’s including the three Selma to Montgomery Marches and the 1955-56 Bus Boycott. To honor the brave people who died fighting for equal rights and treatment during that period, you should visit The Civil Rights Memorial here.

When buying or selling a house here, the real estate closing agent will typically use a Warranty Deed to convey the title of the property to the new owner. For the deed to be legally valid, the document must include the property’s exact legal description, which usually comes from language within the property’s original survey. This state primarily uses the Public Land Survey System (PLSS) methodology when surveying properties. The state has two initial starting points for their PLSS which is the Saint Stephens Meridian in Cascades Park and the Tallahassee Meridian marked by Ellicott’s Stone.
If you aren’t paying cash for the home and are instead getting a loan to buy the real estate, then understand that this is primarily a title theory state. This simply means that the raw title of the property will remain in a trust until the lien is ultimately paid off. The most common document that is used here to secure the lender’s interest in the title is called a Mortgage.
If for some reason the borrower cannot repay the loan, then the lender can save time and money and avoid having to go through the court system. They do this by merely starting a non-judicial foreclosure which typically only takes about 49 to 74 days to complete. However, if certain rarer situations like when there are title problems, then the mortgage company would need to go through the court system and start a more lengthy and costly judicial foreclosure instead.
The laws that pertain to the Ala. foreclosure process are in Title 35, Articles 1, 1A, 2, 3 §35-10-1 et. seq. of the AL Code. However, if you are a landlord that needs to evict a non-paying tenant, then you would need to reference Title 35, Chapter 9 and Chapter 9A instead. Whereas if you are looking to become a real estate agent, then you would just deal directly with the AL Real Estate Commission (AREC), which oversees all the licensing of the agents and most of the implementation and enforcement of the Alabama Real Estate Laws. Amongst other things, the main requirements to get a real estate license here would be to be at least 19 years old, have at least a G.E.D., complete at least 60 hours of approved AL real estate courses, successfully pass the written state exam, pass some criminal background checks, and pay the various required licensing fee.
