Rental Agreement Terms
- The rental agreement can include conditions that both parties agree to as long as those conditions are not prohibited by law: rent, terms of agreement, and the obligations of both landlord and tenants.
- If the agreement does not include a specific lease term, the lease is determined based on payment. Weekly payments of rent have a week to week lease; monthly payments of rent are on a month to month lease. (AS 34.03.020)
Rental Agreement Signatures (AS 34.03.030)
If an agreement is unsigned but payment is received or accepted, the agreement is in effect. If the landlord does not sign but accepts payment, the landlord accepts the terms of the agreement. If the tenant does not sign but makes payment and takes possession of the property, the tenant accepts the terms of the agreement.
Prohibited Provisions (AS 34.03.040)
- Neither party can agree to waive their rights under the law.
- Neither party can be required to automatically pay landlord’s attorney fees
- Anything included in the rental agreement that is prohibited is unenforceable.
Sublease (AS 34.03.060)
- A tenant cannot sublease the property without the landlord’s consent.
- If a rental agreement allows a tenant to sublease, the subleasing tenants are required to submit specific information to the landlord that includes:
- Name, age, and current address
- Marital status
- Occupation and information about employer
- Rental references
- Credit references
- Number of people who will be living in the property

- Commercial activity
- A rejection from a former landlord, which must be included in the rejection
- If no written rejection is received from the landlord after 14 days, the landlord’s consent may be presumed and the tenant can move forward with the sublease or assignment.
