The maximum duration of a standard residential lease in Alaska is one (1) year, and it is recommended that the lease is in writing. If there is no specific term defined in the lease, the length of the lease depends on the frequency that rent is paid.
If rent is paid monthly, it is considered a month-to-month lease. Similarly, if a tenant pays rent weekly, their lease agreement would be considered a week-to-week lease (AK Stat § 31.03.020 (2019)).
