Alaska Tenant Use and Occupancy Requirements

Residential Use and Extended Absence

Unless otherwise agreed, the tenant shall occupy the dwelling unit only as a dwelling unit.  The rental agreement shall require that the tenant notify the landlord of an anticipated extended absence from the premises in excess of seven days; however, the notice shall be given as soon as reasonably possible after the tenant knows the absence will exceed seven days.
