The Alaska seven (7) day notice to quit, also known as Form CIV-725, is sent to a tenant for the non-payment of rent (pursuant to AS 09.45.090). Rent is considered late the day after it is due according to the lease agreement signed or any verbal arrangements made by lessor and lessee.
Once the notice has been sent the tenant has seven (7) days to either pay all that is due or vacate the property. If the tenant decides to leave the property they will legally remain owing the balance due. If the tenant does not pay the amount due in rent (plus penalties) or leave the premises then the landlord will have the right to file a Forcible Entry And Detainer (F.E.D).
