An Alaska transfer on death deed (known as “Form P-150”) conveys an owner’s interest in real estate to a named beneficiary upon the owner’s death. The deed allows the property to bypass probate, the court-supervised administration of a decedent’s estate. A transfer on death deed enables the owner to retain full ownership rights over their real estate while alive, including the right to lease or sell it. Once the form is completed in full, it will need to be acknowledged by a notary public and filed with the local district recorder.
