Evictions in Alaska
If you need to evict a Tenant, it’s vital to properly follow every step of the eviction process. This is key for being successful in an eviction proceeding. Because of this, it’s always a good idea to consult a local attorney before beginning eviction proceedings.
Before filing an eviction, Alaska Landlords must issue proper Notice:
- Alaska 7-Day Notice to Quit: Use this notice when Tenants have unpaid rent.
- Alaska 10-Day Notice to Cure or Vacate: Use this notice for Lease violations other than nonpayment of rent.
At the end of the Notice period, if the Tenant has not complied with the Notice, the Landlord may initiate eviction proceedings by filing a Complaint for Forcible Entry and Detainer.
To do this, Landlords simply complete this form, file it in the proper court, and pay the filing costs.
Once the Complaint is filed, the Landlord must serve a Summons and the Complaint to the Tenant.

More Information about Renting Real Estate in Alaska
Alaska’s average rental payment falls between $900 through $2000 with an average rent of about $1200 per month according to the Alaska.gov website. The most expensive rentals seemed to be in and around the Anchorage location.
Unfortunately, like most other places in the United States, owners of real estate investments usually have to deal with the "e" word…. Eviction. In Alaska, also like most states in the USA, advance notification is sent out. These notices provide the tenant with a warning, "do this or be faced with a court action to be removed." If that tenant ignores or does not either pay an amount they have fallen behind on or stop conducting offensive behavior; the owner or landlord can then complete this form and take it to the local courthouse and file a F.E.D. action against the tenant. The complete name for this is Forcible Entry and Detainer.
ezLandlordForms’ presents the official form (which is also available through Alaska’s court web-site) for FREE. This easy to use form contains fillable fields where the landlord inputs information, prints and voila, it is ready to take to court.
One important reminder is to take as much substantiating information as possible including any notices, documented pictures or notes from any communication with your tenant. One can never have too much in the way of proof.
Once the landlord files this document, it is served upon the tenant and the tenant then will have twenty days to officially respond to the notice. ezLandlordForms' also has many eviction notices to use for varied circumstances.
It is also not a bad idea to contact an attorney or at least the court where the property is located to obtain information on specifically what you are to bring in order to file as well as asking what the fees are and how they are to be paid.
