HOW DO I TRANSFER A DEED?
Generally, all you have to do is draft, sign, notarize, and record a new deed. But there are nuances and important details within each of those steps.
WHAT ARE TENANCIES?
Tenancy describes what type of possession you and any co-owners have of the subject property. Some tenancies are only available to certain people.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
2-4 weeks, in most cases. We prepare documents within 5-10 business days (or next day for an additional fee). Learn More
To prepare for a deed transfer, the first question to answer is: why? Why do you want to transfer a deed? This will determine what is required and how we actually go about drafting the deed. If you are transferring a deed because you are selling the property, there are issues relating to contracts, disclosures, lenders, escrow, and inspections that must be considered. If you just want to transfer the deed to your child, then there aren't as many issues to address. Once we know how we need to approach the deed, we're ready to draft it
The essential elements of a deed address terms like: Grantor, Grantee, Marital Status, Tenancy, Warranties, Capacity, Authority, Prior Conveyances, Legal Description, Encumbrances, Transfer Certificate of Title, and more.
Our process is efficient and 100% paperless. We make it easy so that the transfer process is as simple as:
1. Research & Draft the Deed
2. Sign & Notarize the Deed
3. Record the Deed
When you place an order, you'll receive a link to our on-boarding form. Once we have that information, we'll research and draft the documents. Then, you'll sign/notarize and email the back to us. We'll record them with the State of Hawaii Bureau of Conveyances and email you the final, recorded copy.
Most deed transfers take as little as 2 weeks. We can expedite documents for an additional fee and some transfers can be completed the same day!
