Alaska Sublease Agreement Template

Updated March 01, 2024

An Alaska sublease agreement is a binding contract between the renter of a property and a third party who has agreed to lease the property as their substitute. In a sublease agreement, the original renter is still responsible for the original lease, and the sub-lessee typically must agree to the same terms of the original lease.

Right to Sublet

Unless otherwise agreed to in writing, tenants in Alaska may not sublet the premises or assign the rental agreement to another without the landlord’s consent.[1] Each prospective sub-lessee must make a written offer, signed by them and delivered to the landlord, that contains the following information about them:[2]

  • name, age, and present address;
  • marital status;
  • occupation, place of employment, and name and address of employer;
  • number of all other persons who would normally reside with the prospective occupant;
  • two credit references, or responsible persons who will confirm the financial responsibility of the prospective occupant; and
  • names and addresses of all landlords of the prospective occupant during the prior three years.

The landlord may refuse to accept a sub-lessee provided their reasons are consistent with those permitted by Title 34 of Alaska state law.[3]

Short-Term (Lodgings) Tax

There are no state sales or lodging taxes in Alaska. Taxes on short-term rentals are administered locally by individual cities or boroughs. Typically, “short-term” is defined as less than 30 or 31 days but can vary by location.

For example, the city and borough of Sitka defines a short-term rental as one with a duration of fourteen days or less.[4]
