Alaska Lease Termination Letter | 30-Day Notice

Updated May 20, 2024

An Alaska Notice of Termination of Month-to-Month Tenancy fulfills a requirement of the Alaska Landlord and Tenant Act when one party wishes to end a month-to-month tenancy. An Alaska Month-to-Month lease affords a balance between security and freedom for the landlord and tenant so quite a few landlords and tenants enter a month-to-month lease however while the decision to terminate may be at the discretion of either party, thirty days’ notice must be issued (in writing) before actually doing so.

That is, even with this type of lease arrangement a tenant can no more illegally abandon a leased space than a landlord may illegally evict a tenant. The thirty days’ notice requirement acts as a safeguard against either contingency. The notice is a simple, straightforward form that should be delivered a month before the next rent is due. It should be noted there are exceptions to the thirty days’ notice requirement (i.e., a landlord allows a serious risk to health or safety condition to persist). However, generally speaking, giving written notice is a wise legal precaution and operating within the confines of the law and the lease terms are mandatory in the State of Alaska.

Minimum Termination Period – 30 Days

Laws – AS 34.03.290
