Alaska Eviction Notice Forms (5)

Updated August 16, 2023

An Alaska eviction notice is a formal letter used by landlords to begin the process of removing a tenant from the premises for a lease violation. The landlord must identify the issue and write the tenant through a form known as a ‘Notice to Quit’.

Curable vs. Incurable

If the issue is curable, such as with a late rent payment or another issue that can be remediated, the tenant will have a suggested time frame to fix the issue.

If the issue is incurable, such as deliberate damage, illegal activities, or month-to-month lease termination, the tenant will be forced to leave by the end of the time period suggested.

Delivering (AS § 09.45.100(c)) – A notice to quit must be delivered to the tenant in one of the following three ways: (1) sent via registered or certified mail with a return receipt; (2) hand-delivered to the tenant; or (3) left at the premises in case the tenant is absent at that moment.

2. File Forms

After serving the tenant with the appropriate form and they remain on the property, in violation of the notice, the landlord must file the Complaint (Form CIV-730) (Attach a copy of the Notice to Quit).

An eviction case is filed in the District Court Location where the property is located.

The following must also be filed:

A fee for the amount of $125. Although, it is always best to double-check with the court as the price is always changing.

2. Serve Papers

A copy of the filed Complaint (CIV-730) and Summons (CIV-105) must be sent to the Defendant. The Service Instructions (CIV-615) must be used to guide the process server. After the Defendant has been served they will file a form called the Return of Service that will be served to the landlord and the court.

4. File Answer

The tenant will have a maximum of twenty (20) days to file an Answer (CIV-735) with the court.

5. Attend Hearing

Both parties should attend the hearing and the Judge will only rule on whether the landlord is entitled to possession of the property and not if they are granted damages. After the hearing is complete and the landlord would like to get damages the court will typically automatically set an additional trial hearing. If not, the petitioner will have to file the Memorandum to Set Civil Case For Trial (CIV-200).
