A lien is a security interest used to secure payment of a contract price for labor or materials, services, or equipment furnished in connection with construction, alteration, or repair on real property. It attaches to the property title, and the owner must resolve the lien if he wants to sell or refinance the home.

Under Alaska Statute 34.35.070, a potential claimant can record a claim of lien after entering into a contract for a project. A claimant, as defined by Alaska Statute 34.35.050, is a person who:
-has performed labor for the construction, alteration, or repair of real property;
-is a trustee of an employee benefit trust for the benefit of persons performing the labor;
-furnishes materials or equipment delivered under contract that is/are used in the construction,
alteration, or repair; or
-provides a service under contract such as the preparation of plans, surveys, or architectural or
engineering plans or drawings for the construction, alteration, or repair, whether actually
implemented on that property.

The time limit for recording a claim of lien is established by law at AS 34.35.068 and depends on whether the parties to the lien have filed the appropriate notices beforehand. Both the claimant and the owner have preliminary notice responsibilities according to statute, codified at AS 34.35.064 (notice of right to lien) and 34.35.071 (notice of completion), respectively. If the owner served the claimant with a notice of intent prior to filing the notice of completion, the claimant must file a response within 15 days. Without advance notice, this time expands to 120 days.

A potential claimant also has 15 days to file a claim of lien when no notice of right to lien is given. If the claimant files a notice of right to lien within 15 days of a notice of completion by the owner, he then has 120 days to file a claim of lien.

Alaska does not provide a statutory means for release of lien. Instead, under Alaska law, a lien expires after six months have passed since the recording of a claim of lien, unless a judicial action to enforce the lien is commenced (AS 34.35.080).

A lawful claim of lien is verified by the oath of the claimant or other person having knowledge of the facts contained within it. These facts include a description of the real property subject to the lien; the name of the property owner; the name and address of the claimant; a general description of the labor, materials, services furnished and the contract price; the amount owed to the claimant; and the date the last labor, materials, services, or equipment were furnished (AS 34.35.070).

Documents relating to real property must meet standards of form and content before recording. A claim of lien is not valid unless signed by the claimant and acknowledged in the presence of a notarial official. Record the completed claim of lien in the recording office of the recording district where the affected property is situated.

Each situation is unique, and lien laws can be complicated. Consult an attorney for guidance in filing a claim of lien, or with any other issues related to real property in Alaska.

The service provided by the staff at Deeds.com is consistently excellent with prompt replies and smooth recording transactions. I am grateful to have their service available as driving to downtown Phoenix to record documents is always a daunting prospect. Their assistance in recording our firm's documents has been 100% accurate and a pleasure.

I could not be happier with the service afforded by Deeds.com. After having been directed to two other organizations who purportedly performed this service and being told they could not accommodate me, I found Deeds.com. The website is extremely easy to use, the directions are clear and concise. The site updated me regularly as the documents were progressing through the process, and the detailing of costs was great. The turn-around -- which isn't completely in the hands of the site -- was incredibly quick. I'd use this group again without reservation. As a person who'd have to otherwise travel almost five hours to record, this has been heaven-sent!

3 stars for ease of use on the website. Subracted 2 stars for the forms being PDFs that you are unable to complete online, they have to be printed. Very inefficient.
