How to Write an Eviction Notice in Alaska
For an eviction notice to be legally compliant:
- List tenants’ full names;
- List full address;
- Include grounds for eviction;
- Calculate and include termination date;
- Include date notice served;
- The landlord’s signature and printed name; and
- The landlord’s address and telephone number.
Without this information on the notice, a judge may not be able to proceed with an eviction proceeding and the landlord’s case may be dismissed.
How to Calculate Expiration Date in Alaska
An eviction notice in Alaska takes effect the day after it is served. If the notice period is less than seven (7) days, weekends and legal holidays are not included, so only judicial days may be counted.
If the notice period is seven (7) days or longer, all days are counted in the period, including weekends and legal holidays. Regardless of the notice period length, if the last day falls on a weekend or legal holiday, then the notice period will not officially expire until the end of the next judicial day.
How to Serve an Eviction Notice in Alaska
A landlord can serve eviction notices in Alaska using any of the below acceptable methods:
- Handing the notice to the tenant in person;
- Handing the notice to a person of suitable age at the property AND mailing the notice by registered or certified mail with a return receipt;
- Posting the notice in a conspicuous place at the premises, such as the entry door, AND mailing the notice by registered or certified mail with a return receipt.
When sending the notice by registered or certified mail , add three (3) additional calendar days to the notice period to account for variability in post office delivery times.
