Alaska Month-to-Month Lease Agreement

An Alaska month-to-month lease agreement binds a tenant (lessee) and landlord (lessor) to a rental contract wherein the tenant agrees to rent a dwelling from the landlord on a monthly basis. The agreement is very similar to a standard lease, with the major exception being that the parties do not agree on a fixed end-date. This lack of a defined term makes the contract favorable to landlords that are looking for greater flexibility with their rentals. The lease continues with the tenant paying rent every month at the agreed-upon time until either party wishes to end the arrangement. Justification for terminating a month-to-month lease is not required; however, either party must notify the other thirty (30) days prior to terminating the arrangement.

Notice For Terminating – Thirty (30) days (§ 34.03.290(b))
