Title 45. Trade and Commerce
Chapter 12. Leases
Article 2. Formation and Construction of Lease Contract.
Sec. 45.12.208. Modification, rescission, and waiver.

Universal Citation: AK Stat § 45.12.208 (2020)

(a) An agreement modifying a lease contract does not need consideration to be binding.

(b) A signed lease agreement that excludes modification or rescission except by a signed writing may not be otherwise modified or rescinded, but, except as between merchants, such a requirement on a form supplied by a merchant must be separately signed by the other party.

(c) Although an attempt at modification or rescission does not satisfy the requirements of (b) of this section, it may operate as a waiver.

(d) A party who has made a waiver affecting an executory portion of a lease contract may retract the waiver by reasonable notification received by the other party that strict performance will be required of any term waived, unless the retraction would be unjust in view of a material change of position in reliance on the waiver.
