Document Formatting Requirements
There are two systems of recording in Hawaii: Regular System and Land Court System. The Regular System gives notice that something is on record. Because of confusion regarding land ownership, similar names, etc., Land Court was established in 1903. Land Court functions as a registration system for land ownership. Certificates of title are issued to owners of land registered in Land Court, and documents are identified by a seven digit number. Unlike Regular System property, ownership in Land Court is guaranteed by the state of Hawaii.

• All names must be printed, typed, or stamped underneath signatures.

• Documents shall not be larger than 8.5x11 inches, or any exhibits, schedules, or inventories that are larger than 8.5x11 inches.

• If a document consists of more than one page, each page should be single-sided sheets of written text numbered consecutively, beginning with number one, or the total number of pages contained in the document must be referenced on the first page.

• The first page should identify and include, if possible, all names of the grantors and all names and address of the grantees, the type of document, and the tax map key number.

• Documents should have a first page top margin of 3.5 inches. After the 3.5 inch space, the following 1 inch will be used for the submitter to give return address information so that the document may be returned to the appropriate party.

• The return address information should begin 1.5 inches from the left margin, and should not exceed 3.5 inches per line.

• The registrar shall not record a document unless it contains a reference to the book and page or document number of the recordation of the interest acquired.

• The grantee(s) address must be included on documents of conveyance.

• The names of parties must conform throughout the instrument (i.e. body of instrument, signature line, and notary page).

• A notarial acknowledgment is required for documents.

• A self-addressed stamped envelope should accompany any instrument, unless the submitter will pick it up in person at the Bureau of Conveyances.
