Alaska Standard Residential Lease Agreement Template
An Alaska standard residential lease agreement is used to outline a twelve (12) month contract between a tenant and a landlord although a longer duration is possible. The agreement provides a thorough and definitive set of terms and conditions under which both parties must operate while detailing such provisions as the cost of rent, the existence of a security deposit, and the acceptance of pets on the premises. Landlords are encouraged to screen their applicants through a rental application form to ensure they are capable of covering all applicable costs and responsible enough to care for the property.
