AS 34.08.140. Leasehold Common Interest Communities.
- (a) If the expiration or termination of a lease or a memorandum of the lease will terminate the common interest community
or reduce its size, the lease or a memorandum of the lease must be recorded. In a condominium or planned community,
the lessor of each lease described in this subsection shall sign the declaration. The declaration must state
- (1) the recording data for the lease or a summary of the complete lease;
- (2) the date on which the lease is scheduled to expire;
- (3) a legally sufficient description of the real estate subject to the lease;
- (4) any right of the unit owners to redeem the reversion and the manner in which the rights may be exercised, or a
statement that the unit owners do not have a right to redeem the reversion;
- (5) any right of the unit owners to remove any improvements within a reasonable time after the expiration or termination
of the lease, or a statement that the unit owners do not have the right to remove improvements after the expiration or
termination of the lease; and
- (6) any right of the unit owners to renew the lease and the conditions of the renewal, or a statement that the unit owners
do not have the right to renew the lease.
- (b) After the declaration for a leasehold condominium or leasehold planned community is recorded, and a plat or plan that
is part of the declaration is filed and recorded, neither the lessor nor the successor in interest of the lessor may
terminate the leasehold interest of a unit owner who makes timely payment of a unit owner's share of the rent and
otherwise complies with the covenants that, if violated, would entitle the lessor to terminate the lease. The
leasehold interest of a unit owner in a condominium or planned community is not affected by the failure of any other
person to pay rent or fulfill a covenant.
- (c) The acquisition of the leasehold interest of a unit owner by the owner of the reversion or remainder does not merge
the leasehold and fee simple interests unless the leasehold interests of all unit owners subject to that reversion or
remainder are acquired.
- (d) If the expiration or termination of a lease decreases the number of units in a common interest community, the
allocated interests must be reallocated under AS 34.08.740
(a) as if the units had been taken by eminent domain. The reallocation must be confirmed by an amendment to the
declaration prepared, executed, and recorded by the association of unit owners; a plat or plan that accompanies the
amendment must be filed and recorded with the amendment.
