The Alaska Uniform Residential Landlord and Tenant Act has set forth the following requirements for the eviction of a mobile home or mobile home tenant:
Reason for Eviction
A mobile home park operator may evict a mobile home or a mobile home park dweller or tenant only for one of the following reasons:
- The mobile home dweller or tenant has defaulted in the payment of rent owed;
- The mobile home dweller or tenant has been convicted of violating a federal or state law or local ordinance, and that violation is continuing and is detrimental to the health, safety, or welfare of other dwellers or tenants in the mobile home park;
- The mobile home dweller or tenant has violated a provision, enforceable under the section Alaska Landlord Rules and Regulations, of the rental agreement or lease signed by both parties and not prohibited by law including rent and the terms of agreement; and
- A change in the use of the land comprising the mobile home park, or the portion of it on which the mobile home to be evicted is located; however, all dwellers or tenants so affected by a change in land use shall be given at least 270 days’ notice, or longer if a longer notice period is provided in a valid lease or required by a municipality; a dweller or tenant so affected by a change in land use shall be given a quit date not earlier than May 1 and not later than October 15; a municipality may establish a mobile home relocation fund and require that a dweller or tenant so affected by a change in land use be given a longer notice period or compensated from the fund for the cost of disconnecting, relocating, and reestablishing the dweller’s or tenant’s mobile home.
Note: When, under this subsection, a mobile home park owner is required to give notice to evict a mobile home owner or a mobile home park dweller or tenant, provision of notice to quit under the section Alaska Notice to Quit Form and Laws satisfies the requirement of notice.
Age of the Mobile Home
A mobile home park operator may not evict a mobile home or a mobile home park dweller or tenant because of the age of the mobile home, except that a mobile home or a mobile home park dweller or tenant may be evicted if, when the mobile home was admitted to the mobile home park, a regulation of the mobile home park limiting the age of a mobile home in the mobile home park was in effect, the mobile home is sold after the age limitation has been exceeded, and the owner or tenant of the mobile home has failed to bring the unit into compliance with the life safety requirements of 24 CFR Part 3280. This does not prohibit eviction for violation of a provision enforceable under the section Alaska Landlord Rules and Regulations that requires that a mobile home be in a fit and habitable condition.
