I signed a 1 year lease in Apartment, Without letting me know about no Hot Water at Night. Also using 1 Washer and 1 Dryer in 6 Plex apartment, but before that my Landlord told me that she is going to add another Washer and dyer but till now no action. I moved in Jun 1 2009 to Jun 1 2010. Am i allowed to Terminate my lease and move out?

I would consult a lawyer about that one. Haven't got a clue and when I try to answer something like that, invariably, I'm wrong.

Looks like with the document provided, the answer is yes after giving written notice allowing 10 days for correction of the problem. If the problem is not corrected, you can then move out. Read the pertinent parts of the document to make sure you follow the correct steps for breaking the lease.

(5) supply running water and reasonable amounts of hot water and heat at all times, insofar as
energy conditions permit, except where the building that includes the dwelling unit is so
constructed that heat or hot water is generated by an installation within the exclusive control of
the tenant and supplied by a direct public utility connection;


careful in the interpretation of this.... the words that could be a slid for the landlord are "insofar as energy conditions permit," leaves a lot of wiggle room for not providing hot water at night.

Their public profile seems to indicate they live in Kodiak.

If your dwelling is being served by a public utility system in Alaska your entitled to hot water and heat as a tenant. The only places where this may apply is in a smaller village that does not have a central water system. But you'd know that if you lived there.

In Anchorage, Juneau, Fairbanks, Ketchikan, Kodiak, Nome, etc. there would be no reason for a landlord not to be able to supply the above mentioned utilities.
