Hawaii Special Warranty Deed Form

The Hawaii special warranty deed provides a method of conveyance of real property in Hawaii. Similar to a warranty deed, it provides a guarantee from the seller to the buyer. However, the guarantee is limited in that it is only guaranteeing that the grantor did not transfer interest or otherwise encumber the property while he or she owned it. Unlike a warranty deed, however, there is no guarantee that others will not claim an interest in the property from transfers that occurred before grantor acquired the property. In order to ascertain exactly what interest the buyer is purchasing in a property, it is important that he or she has a property or title search completed.
