Alaska Rental Application
An Alaska rental application is a legal document landlords utilize to gather information about prospective tenants interested in renting a property. Selecting an unsuitable tenant can result in inconvenience or significant issues. This form, adhering to the state’s landlord-tenant laws, offers a legally compliant approach to tenant selection. Despite being only two (2) pages long, the application provides comprehensive information that, combined with background checks, enables landlords to make informed decisions about potential tenants.
Maximum Application Fee: Not specified. The Alaska Uniform Residential Landlord and Tenant Act does not include statutes limiting the amount a landlord can charge for processing a rental application
Security Deposits (§ 34.03.070(a)): Under ordinary circumstances, landlords can request up to two (2) months’ rent as a security deposit. However, if the monthly rent exceeds $2,000, landlords may require tenants to pay more than two (2) months’ rent as a security deposit.

- Contact information (name(s), phone number(s), email, birth date, social security number, and driver’s license number)
