Alaska Eviction Process

When a tenant fails to comply with the rental agreement by failing to pay rent, performing illegal acts, or damaging the property, the landlord may have grounds to evict them. Depending on the breach, the landlord may provide the tenant the option to correct the violation within a specific time period. Alaska does not require more than one notice to quit for the landlord to recover possession of the premises. However, the landlord cannot remove the tenant who fails to move out — this must be done by the court.

Landlords must strictly adhere to state laws and procedures for the eviction to be legal. Typically, an eviction process takes 1-2 months to complete, but this timeline can vary based on the eviction reason and if the tenant challenges it.
