Alaska Special Warranty Deed Form

Updated September 19, 2023

An Alaska special warranty deed is used to convey a parcel of real estate in Alaska to a purchaser with a limited warranty other than specified in the document. The seller must state any restrictions on the warranty in the deed. It is important that the seller’s husband or wife, if married sign the deed as well to make sure that any interest he or she owns is also conveyed. Such interest may be a homestead interest or a joint interest. Once the document is signed in front of a notary, the seller should make a copy for his or her records and provide the original to the purchaser or grantee.

The Recipient of the filed deed can be anyone designated by the Grantor of the Alaska property.

(3) Grantor Of Alaska Property. The Party (or Parties) who release their ownership and claims to the Alaska property being discussed should both be reported as the Grantor(s) of ownership and claim rights to the Alaskan property. Each Party who will sign this deed as the Alabama Grantor must be attached to this role in the first statement.

(4) Address Of Alaska Grantor. The Alaska Grantor’s home address should be established in this paperwork. Thus, supply the building number, the street/road name or number, and unit number composing the Alaska Grantor’s residential address.

(5) Alaska County Of Residence. Dispense the name of the County and State where the Alaska Grantor’s residence is located.

IV. Consideration Required For Alaska Property

(6) Payment Received For Alaska Property. The Grantor will, typically, require that a certain dollar amount is received for the consideration of releasing the Alaska property to the new Owner. This required payment should be documented in writing as well as numerically using the area attached to and within the parentheses.

V. Grantee Taking Ownership Of Property

(7) Grantee Receiving Alaska Property. It is imperative to this paperwork that the full name of the Party (or the Parties) set to receive the claim to ownership over the concerned Alaska property is recorded in this statement.

(9) Residential County Of Alaska Grantee. The residential address of the Alaska Grantee should be continued with the name of the County and the State where he or she lives.

VI. Alaska Property In Question

(10) Alaska County. The Alaskan property that will be transferred in claim and ownership through the function of this paperwork must be defined. Begin this discussion by documenting the name of the Alaska County where the property is found.

(11) Legal Description. The legal description found on the discussed property’s deed or in the Alaska County Recorders Office where the property is located must be delivered to the space provided along with the physical address of the concerned Alaskan real property the Grantee will have the right to own.

VII. Verified Alaska Grantor Signature

(12) Signature Of Alaska Grantor. This declaration of a transfer of ownership and claims to Alaskan real property will not be considered a valid statement made by the Grantor unless he or she signs the completed document. Such an instrument of acknowledgment should only be provided after the Grantor has read the content of this deed, read every attachment, and can verify the intent this document presents as accurate. Every Grantor named in the first paragraph must submit his or her signature. Two areas are available but if more are needed (i.e. the property is owned by several Siblings) then a signature attachment can be made and notarized or additional signature areas may be inserted as needed.

(13) Alaska Grantor Identity Information. The Grantor of Alaska property’s printed name and address will be needed with his or her signature.

VIII. Notarization Of Alaska Grantor Signing

(14) Notary Acknowledgment. The State of Alaska provides a number of venues(i.e. A Judge, Postmaster, or certain types of Municipal Clerks) that allow the Grantor to provide the mandated verified signature to this paperwork. Many would agree however, that the notarization process is a standard and reliable method for verifying the identity of a Signature Party. Therefore, the final section has been presented and reserved for the use of the Notary Public obtained by the Grantor to verify the signing of this document.
