No. Nothing to cancel, no memberships, no recurring fees.

Under the Alaska Statutes, the beneficiary of an interest in property may disclaim the gift, either in part or in full (AS 13.12.801 Uniform Disclaimer of Property Interests Act). Note that the option to disclaim is only available to beneficiaries who have not acted in any way to indicate acceptance or ownership of the interest (AS 13.12.801 (j)).

The document must be in writing and include a description of the interest, a declaration of intent to disclaim all or a defined portion of the interest, and be signed by the disclaimant (AS 13.12.801 (f)).

File the disclaimer within nine months of the transfer (e.g., the death of the creator of the interest) in the court of the judicial district that has jurisdiction over proceedings regarding the administration of the estate of the deceased donor. In addition, deliver a copy, either in person or via registered or certified mail with return receipt, to the personal representative or other fiduciary of the decedent or done (AS 13.12.801 (b)). If real property is involved, record a copy of the document in the office of the recording district in which the property is located in order to avoid any ambiguity regarding the chain of title (AS 13.12.801 (e)).

A disclaimer is irrevocable and binding for the disclaiming party and his or her creditors (AS 13.12.801 (i)), so be sure to consult an attorney when in doubt about the drawbacks and benefits. If the interest arises out of jointly-owned property, seek legal advice as well.

I just completed my first deed filing and I’m very happy with the experience. The deeds staff was extremely supportive and helpful in guiding me through the learning curve of being my first filing without legal assistance. They saved me a ton in legal fees.

Disappointed on most recent order. Format did not permit changing the "boilerplate" language to change "grantor" to "grantors". In so restricting, could not use pre-printed form to make a joint party conveyance.

I liked having the forms. Some may need to know they can look at the legal Description from online county records, then type up in Word document line by line, the degree sign in Word program is achieved by using alt and 248 on number pad. Then on the form page one write SEE Exibit A and title your Word program description as Exibit A. Goes without saying the legal description should be looked over many times and it is easier to do so if you format your Word the same lineage as the legal description online which is usually not text which is why you have to retype it.

The documents I created on deeds com turned out beautiful and very professional looking. The example they gave along with the instruction booklet made it very easy t create a professional looking document for our land Sale. I was very pleased with how easy it was and would recommend it to anyone needing professional documents without having to go thru an attorney or title company. I was very impressed!
