Alaska Deed Forms

Updated August 26, 2022

Alaska deeds are legal documents that allow the transfer of real estate, according to Title 34, Chapter 15 (Conveyances), from a seller (Grantor) to a buyer (Grantee). There are three (3) main deed types to handle a traditional sale or if just an interest in property is being transferred. The deeds should be completed after the buyer has received their funds or trade for the property and the deed will be completed as the last step in the closing. Afterwards, the buyer will be able to submit their deed to the County Registry with a Title Company.
