AS 34.35.520. Disposition of Property to Satisfy Liens.
- (a) If a lien under AS 34.35.510
is not satisfied within 60 days after the charges become due, the hotel or boardinghouse operator may proceed to sell
the baggage or other property held under the lien at public auction. Ten days before the sale the hotel or
boardinghouse operator shall give notice of the time and place of sale by posting notice in three public places in the
town or city where the hotel or boardinghouse is located and by mailing notice of the time and place to the owner of
the baggage or other property at the place of residence as set out in the hotel or boardinghouse register. If the guest
failed to register or to give sufficient address, the required notice shall be mailed to the guest at the city or town
where the hotel or boardinghouse is located. When the notice requirements of this section have been complied with, the
sale of the baggage or other property is a perpetual bar to an action against the hotel or boardinghouse operator for
recovery of baggage, property, or their value.
- (b) After satisfaction of the lien and payment of all legal charges for storage and expenses incurred in selling the
property, the remaining proceeds of the sale shall, within one year, be paid to the guest upon demand.
