According to Title 34, Chapter 15 (Conveyances), Alaska deeds allow the Grantor to convey a real estate property to a Grantee. Completing the deed is usually the last step in closing and is done after the money has been successfully transferred to the Grantor. See Chapter 34.15 (Conveyances).
After processing the deed, the Grantor has to submit the deed to the county registry with a title company. Apart from holidays and special closures, recording can be processed in all 34 districts from 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM Monday to Friday — you can view all recorders here.
There are three types of deeds: the General Warranty Deed, Quitclaim, and Special Warranty deed.
A Quitclaim transfers the property from the Grantor to the Grantee without any guarantees to the title. It is mainly used when both the Grantor and Grantee are familiar with each other and have prior knowledge of the title deed. See AS 34.15.040
Special Warranty Deeds are used to transfer property with the warranty that there were no title defects while the Grantor owned the property. The warranty this deed offers does not extend to before the Grantor owned the property.
