Alaska Standard Residential Lease Agreement

The lease cannot be changed or revised while it is in effect in this state - unless it is agreed upon in writing by the signatories. The major objective of a written residential contract like this is to provide security to both parties by defining a particular period during which the lease is in effect and binding tenants and landlords to each other under the agreed-upon parameters. If one individual's actions or decisions contradict the landlord-tenant contract they entered, the Alaska Landlord and Tenant Act will allow courts to make a judgment.

Note: The Landlord and Tenant Act is silent on whether landlords can charge late fees for late rent or NSF costs for checks returned for insufficient money. It may be acceptable for a rental contract to include a small flat-rate late fee or non-sufficient funds fee. It may also be acceptable to include a reasonable percentage-per-day late fee in the rental agreement.
