An Alaska deed conveys ownership of real property from a grantor (seller) to a grantee (buyer). The type of deed used depends on the level of security (if any) the grantor will provide the grantee regarding the property’s title. When real estate is conveyed between two parties that know each other well, using a deed without assurances (such as a quit claim deed) is a standard practice. Regardless of the type of deed used, the grantee should conduct a title search to confirm the property is free of any liens, mortgages, or additional owners prior to signing.


Types (5)

Deed of Trust – A contract that conveys a property’s title to a neutral third party (trustee) until a real estate loan is repaid in full. Includes three (3) parties: the borrower (grantor), the lender (beneficiary), and a trustee.
