A conveyance of land in this state can be made by deed, signed and sealed by the grantor, and acknowledged or proved, and then recorded as provided by law.
The form for a warranty deed appears in 34.15.030 of the Alaska Revised Code and is written without express covenants. A deed of this type, when duly executed, is considered a conveyance in fee simple to the grantee and the grantee's heirs and assigns, with the following covenants from the grantor: (1) that at the time the warranty deed was made, the grantor was lawfully seized of an indefeasible estate in fee simple to the premises described, and has the right and power to convey the premises, (2) that the premises were free from encumbrances at the time the deed was made and delivered, and (3) that the grantor warrants the quiet and peaceable possession of the premises, and will defend the title to the premises against all persons claiming the premises (34.15.030).
After-acquired title or interest will pass by operation of law to the grantee or the grantee's successors in a warranty deed executed in Alaska (34.15.07).
An Alaska warranty deed should be acknowledged before a person authorized to take acknowledgements or proved in accordance with law. The officer taking the acknowledgment should endorse on the deed a certificate of acknowledgement and the date the acknowledgment was made (34.15.150). If executed in a state other than Alaska, it may be executed according to the laws of the state and acknowledged according to 09.63.050. A conveyance can also be proved by subscribing witness, the details of which can be found in 34.15.210 of the Alaska Revised Code.
The purpose of recording a document is to register property rights with the state of Alaska so that ownership can be proved. When a warranty deed is recorded in the registry district where the land is located, the recorded document is constructive notice of the contents to subsequent purchasers and holders of a security interest in the same property or a part of the property (40.17.080). A warranty deed in this state is void as against a subsequent purchaser in good faith for valuable consideration of the same property or part of it whose conveyance is first duly recorded. Unrecorded warranty deeds are valid between the parties to it and one who has actual notice of it (40.17.080). A conveyance should be submitted for recording in the recording district where the land is located. When submitting a warranty deed for recordation, the recording district must be stated on the document.

Gary G. said: Ordered the forms I needed for my state and county and everything worked out perfectly. All the forms came with examples (filled in) and very detailed instructions for each block that required an entry. I was able to fill everything out on my computer and save the files for future use, if required. Deeds provides an excellent product. I highly recommend their products and will use their services again.

Alexis B. said: Highly Pleased- Strongly Recommend Deeds.com Long review... sorry:-) Originally I was very skeptical due to the enormous amount of the scams going on now days and the number of online sources that "claim" to provide you with deed forms for free or for a few. Nothing that you need and want done is free. There is always a cost. So luckily I came across deeds.com. This was the only site that appeared to be simple, to the point, and made no crazy promises. So before selecting this site, I did a little more checking around/price checking to ensure I am getting the best price for the product I needed. I even checked Staples and Amazon to find that they do indeed sell these forms but I do not think the products they provide are specific for my state and county. They claim their forms provided are for all states but my state is specific and I prefer to have forms provided by Deeds.com that is based on Indiana statute that Deed.com clearly identifies on each form. Deeds.com price of $20 seemed a little high at first but when I saw the products provided, the $20 cost is more than reasonable and fair. You not only get the deed form specific for my state and my specific "county" but also the other various/supplemental forms that may be required. Being familiar with my state and knowing how tedious and anal my state is on everything, I was pleasantly please to see the info and extra supplemental forms provided. For example, a person new to the State who recently had property deeded to them, would not necessarily know about the Homestead tax exemption provided if property is your primary residents, over 65 exemption etc. I would highly recommend this site for anyone needing these documents because Deeds.com has you covered on any and all forms/info you could ever need! A bonus is that there is one flat fee and not monthly cost that you have to worry about canceling later unless you superficially select a monthly package. I love the fact that Deeds.com is nothing fancy. There is not a bunch of elaborate graphics etc. They only provide what you need and what they provide is very accurate. Deeds.com has a customer for life.
