Alaska Lease Agreement Templates

Alaska lease agreements are contracts made between a landlord and tenant to lease a property for monthly rent. Both parties will agree prior to writing an agreement to the rent, utility responsibilities, pets, and any other items. The landlord will also require the landlord to submit their personal credentials and consent to a credit check to make sure they can afford the property.
