Alaska Rental Application


The Alaska Rental Application is a document used by landlords to collect information on potential tenants who have shown interest in renting a unit. Allowing the “wrong” tenant to live in a rental property can be an inconvenience at best, and a disaster at worst. The form, which conforms with all Alaska landlord-tenant laws, provides a legal solution to the tenant-selection process. Although just two (2) pages, the form contains comprehensive information that, along with background checks, provides more than enough information to make a sound decision on a tenant.

State Laws

Maximum Application Fee: None. The Alaska Uniform Residential Landlord and Tenant Act does not contain any statutes that limit the amount of money a landlord can charge for filing a rental application.

Security Deposits (AS 34.03.070): In standard circumstances, landlords can charge up to two (2) months’ rent. In situations where the monthly rent is more than $2,000, the landlord can require the tenant to pay more than two (2) months as a security deposit.
