The Alaska month to month rental agreement is for landlords and tenants seeking to have a tenancy at will in which either party may elect to change or terminate the contract with thirty (30) days’ notice. The landlord should keep in mind that there is just as much risk in renting to a short-term tenant as a long-term. Therefore, the rental application is recommended to verify the character, employment, and income of the lessee.
According to Alaska Statute 34-3-290, a month to month rental agreement must be terminated with at least thirty (30) days’ notice by either the landlord or tenant. This notice should always be in the form of a certified letter with a return receipt.
