Alaska, as does almost 30 other states, makes land available for free to persons who agree to certain stipulations.
For example, there is free land in Alaska in certain areas for people who agree to build a home out of logs cut from the land they’ve been given.
What Are The Requirements To Get Free Land In Alaska For A Homestead?
The general requirements are that a person has to:
- Live on the claimed land for most of the specified consecutive years;
- Live in a habitable dwelling (a tent does not count); and
- Cultivate at least one-eighth of the land.
At different times in Alaska, these requirements may be subject to change.
People who served honorably in the Armed Services could possibly apply a portion of their service time to substitute for the homesteading time requirement for living on their land.
The land has to be surveyed before a claimant can get a homestead.
Alaska has started special legislation to allow new settlers to enter homestead claims on un-surveyed lands, with the option of either waiting for a government survey at no cost, or paying for one themselves as a way of expediting receiving patent to the land.
Further, special legislation may allow new settlers to have irregular shaped homestead claims with natural boundaries such as meandering streams, lakeshores, or other land features.
Previously, only rectangular homesteads were allowed.
