What Is an Alaska Month-to-Month Lease Agreement?

An Alaska month-to-month lease is a short-term lease agreement between the landlord and tenant. The month-to-month lease agreement renews at the beginning of each month. Although a month-to-month tenancy is technically 30 days in length, the landlord and tenant may find the relationship so beneficial that they make the end date indefinite.

A month-to-month rental agreement must comply with Alaska landlord-tenant laws. This type of residential lease agreement should include the exact terms of the lease found in a fixed-term lease, including:

  • The amount of the monthly rent and when the month’s rent is due
  • The late fee amount
  • The security deposit amount
  • Rent increase
  • Whether the renter is required to take care of common areas
  • Whether subletting the rental property is allowed
  • The occupancy information for the rental unit
  • The parking policy
  • The pet policy
  • The notice period for lease termination for move out
  • How to deliver a written notice
  • Eviction information

What Laws Apply to Alaska Month-to-Month Lease Agreements?

The Alaska Uniform Landlord and Tenant Act governs month-to-month lease agreements. According to §34.03.070, a landlord cannot charge more than two month’s rent as a security deposit. The landlord may keep the security deposit for damages to the rental real estate that exceed normal wear and tear, nonpayment of rent, or noncompliance with the residential lease agreement. If the landlord keeps some or all of the security deposit, they must provide the renter with an itemized receipt. The landlord must return the security deposit to the renter within 30 days of moving out.

Landlords and property managers must understand state laws, city and town laws, and federal laws. Alaska laws can be complex. It is wise to seek legal advice to understand how to protect your rights and to understand your obligations as a property owner before entering into a rental lease agreement in the State of Alaska.

Terminating an Alaska Month-to-Month Lease Agreement

According to §34.03.290, the notice period for lease termination for an Alaska month-to-month lease agreement is 30 days. For it to be a proper notice, the 30-day notice must be a written notice.
