Anchorage, AK Landlord / Tenant Law

Having a one or two year lease on a house or apartment in Anchorage, Alaska has its benefits.  As a tenant, you don’t have to worry about selling the place when the time comes for you to move on, and living in a smaller place for a shorter amount of time could save you a significant amount of money.  But, if the relationship you have with your landlord is shaky, renting a property can suddenly become highly stressful.

Truly fair and responsible landlords are sometimes hard to come by, and this means that landlord-tenant relationships teeter on a tightrope over legal hot water.  There is a specific set of laws that shape the responsibilities of both landlord and tenant and complicated disputes arise when one or the other does not comply.

Landlord / Tenant laws outline how to handle rent, repairs, security deposits, eviction and other terms of the lease.  In many situations, people try to handle these issues on their own, even when disputes arise, preferring not to get the law involved.  However, as landlord / tenant law attorneys in Anchorage, we would advise someone to seek legal help when landlord disputes become frequent or intense.

If your landlord is not obeying the terms of the lease, following up on his or her responsibilities, or is discriminating against you, don’t hesitate to reach out to Law Office of Jennifer Messick.  Jenn will answer any questions you have and work hard to get your landlord / tenant relationship in Anchorage back on the right track.  You don’t have to suffer until your lease is up.
