What are Alaska Property Records?

State of Alaska property records are documents containing legal information pertaining to real property. Such legal documents contain details about properties with and without structures. Most state of Alaska property records are referred to as "deeds" that contain information ranging from the address of the property to the name of the property owner and beyond. A deed is registered with the recorder's office after a real estate contract closes.
