Alaska Notice to Quit (Delivery Options)
A person entitled to the premises who seeks to recover possession of the premises may not commence and maintain an action to recover possession of premises unless the person first gives a notice to quit to the person in possession.
To recover possession of premises after a tenant or person in possession has failed or refused to pay rent due, service of the written notice required under the section Alaska Tenant Noncompliance and Failure to Pay Rent or of a demand in writing for possession of the premises constitutes notice to quit, and service of a separate notice to quit is not required.
A notice to quit shall be in writing and shall be served upon the tenant or person in possession by being:
- Delivered to the tenant or person;
- Left at the premises in case of absence from the premises; or
- Sent by registered or certified mail.
