Hawaii Deed Forms

Updated on October 26th, 2022

A Hawaii deed is used to transfer real estate from a grantor to a grantee once recorded with the Hawaii Bureau of Conveyances. In most cases, the transaction will be between a seller and a buyer and include the purchase price and a legal description of the property. The deed is separate from the purchase agreement that relays the terms of the real estate purchase, and its primary purpose is to officially record that the property has changed hands.

The level of legal protection provided to the grantee will vary depending on the deed type. For instance, a general warranty deed guarantees that there are no monetary claims on the property, while a quit claim deed provides no such assurances.


Types (4)

General Warranty Deed – Includes a statement guaranteeing that there are no liens or encumbrances on the property from its current and previous owners.
