Alaska Affidavit of Heirship
If a person dies without a will in Alaska, it may be necessary to file an Affidavit of Heirship to establish ownership of the deceased's property.
- The Affidavit lists all of the potential heirs of the deceased person.
- If the deceased person owned real estate, the Affidavit will need to be recorded with the county where the property is located. The property cannot be sold until heirship issues have been dealt with.
The Alaska Affidavit of Heirship will help clear up intestacy matters and questions of property ownership.
