Alaska Deed Forms

An Alaska deed is a form used to convey 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. If real estate will be conveyed between two parties that know each other well, using a deed without assurances (such as a quit claim deed) is standard. 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.
