Alaska Quit Claim Deed Form

Create a high quality document online now!

The Alaska Quit Claim Deed is a standard form that binds a Grantor to release ownership of a Property to the Grantee listed. Typically, this will be in exchange for a predetermined sum of money. Generally, it is technically not required to file such paperwork with the Alaska Department of Natural Resources Recorder’s Office, however,r doing so will provide quite a bit of protection to both parties.

Laws – AS 34.15.040

Recording – A quitclaim deed must be filed in the Recorder’s District where the property is located. There is usually a fee associated with the filing and it is recommended to bring a blank check or contact the recorder before your arrival.

Signing (AS 34.15.150) – All quit claim deeds authorized in the State of Alaska must be done with a notary public.

How to Write

Step 1 – You may obtain a blank copy of the Alaska Quit Claim Deed by selecting one of the buttons beneath the image (PDF, ODT, or Word) then, saving it to your computer.

Step 2 – In the upper left-hand corner at the top of the page there will be several lines below the words “Prepared By.” Here, the individual reporting information may report that he or she is doing so. First, this entity must enter his or her Full Name on the blank line labeled “Name.”

Step 3 – On the blank line following the word “Address,” the Preparer, filling out this form, must report his or her Street Address.

Step 4 – The fourth line in this section will contain two items requiring information. Here, you must report the State where the Preparer is located, on the blank line labeled “State” and the Zip Code where the Preparer is located on the blank line following the word “Zip Code.”

Step 5 – The next heading, “After Recording Return To,” will also contain several blank lines. Here, you must report where materials concerning this filing should be returned and/or sent. On the blank line labeled “Name,” report the Full Name of the Mail Recipient for this material.

Step 6 – On the blank line following the word “Address,” the Mailing Address where returned materials should be sent must be documented. This should be a reliable Mailing Address that is well-maintained. Enter the Building Number, Street, Unit Number, PO Box, etc. of this address on the “Address” line (two blank lines are provided for this purpose).

Step 7 – On the line beginning with the word “State,” enter the State associated with the Mailing Address. Similarly, on the blank line following the words “Zip Code,” report the Zip Code associated with this Mailing Address.

Step 8 – Next, below the heading “State of Alaska,” report the County where the property in question is located on the blank line labeled “County.”

Step 9 – The next area will require a substantial amount of information. On the first blank line, write out the amount of money to be transferred. Then, in the parentheses, write this amount numerically.

Step 10 – On the blank line following the words “Paid to,” report the Full Name of the individual who is receiving this money for the purposes of this agreement. On the next blank space (after “a”) write in the word “Grantor.” This is the person receiving the money and releasing the property as a result.

Step 11 – Next, on the blank line following the words “residing at,” report the Building Number, Street, and any applicable Suite Number where the party receiving the previously reported money resides. This Address should be continued by reporting the County where the Grantor resides on the blank line following the words “County of,” reporting the City where the Grantor resides on the blank line following “City of,” and the State where the Grantor resides on the blank line following the words “State of.”

Step 12 – The next line requiring attention will follow the words “quitclaims to.” Here, you must report the Name of the entity who shall receive the property in question. Enter the Full Name of this entity on the first blank line after the words “quit claims to.” Then on the next blank space, write in the word “Grantee.”

Step 13 – Locate the words, “residing at,” following the space where you wrote in “Grantee.” Here, you must report the Street Address where the Grantee resides. This should consist of a Building Number, Street, and any Suite Number that applies. Continue defining this Address by entering the County, City, and State where the Grantee resides on the blank lines labeled “Country of,” “City of,” and “State of” respectively.

Step 14 – Now it will be time to define the Property this filing applies to. On the blank line following the words “real estate, situated in,” document the County where the Property being quit is located.

Step 15 – The next few blank lines are provided to describe the property being quit. This must be a description that leaves no question as to the Property being referred to. Ideally, an Address, a Physical Description, Title/Deed, and any other materials recording this property as that of the Grantor’s (in the eyes of the State of Alaska) should be provided.

Step 16 – The final area to be attended to by the Grantor is the Signature area. This will bind the Grantor to the terms stated. There will be enough room for two Grantors to Sign. If there are any more, they too must Sign and provide the requested information. First, locate the line labeled “Grantor’s Signature.” The Grantor must Sign his or her Name on this line.

Step 17 – On the blank line labeled “Grantor’s Name,” the Grantor must Print/Type his or her Name.

Step 18 – On the blank line labeled “Address,” the Signature Party must provide his or her Street Address (Building Number/Street/Unit Number).

Step 19 – On the blank line labeled “City, State, & Zip,” the Signature Party must fill in the City, State, and Zip Code associated with his or her Street Address.

Step 20 – The area following the Signature Lines is reserved for the attending Notary Public. Here the Notary Public must provide the County, Parties involved, Date, Notary License, Notary Seal, and Commission Expiration Date in the space provided. This area may only be filled in by the Notary Public witnessing the signing.

Step 21 – Next, you will need to record this document with the Alaska Department of Natural Resources Recorder’s Office.  There will be a fee involved (this may vary) depending upon the locality. Generally, it is suggested to contact the Alaska Recorder’s Office District Office of the Property’s county ahead of time.
