Hawaii Deed Forms

A Hawaii deed is used to transfer real estate from a grantor to a grantee once recorded with the Hawaii Bureau of Conveyances. In the majority of 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 main 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 will give a guarantee that there are no monetary claims on the property, while a quit claim deed provides no such assurances.
