Updated June 06, 2022

A Hawaii general warranty deed is used to convey real property in Hawaii from a seller to a buyer. A warranty represents a guarantee from the seller that he or she is transferring the property free of any claims or restrictions and that if any such claims or restrictions appear, the seller will defend the buyer from such claims. Despite the guarantee, however, it is always recommended that the buyer do a complete title or property search to make sure he or she knows exactly what is being purchased and whether or not there are any easements or restrictions, such as shared driveways and utility lines.

Laws Chapter 502 (Bureau of Conveyances; Recording) – §§ 502-1 — 502-125

Signing Requirements – A warranty deed is required to be signed in the presence of a Notary Public (HRS § 502-41).

Recording the Deed

All deeds must be filed at the Bureau of Conveyances in Honolulu along with the required recording fee (HAR § 13-16-4).
