Hawaii Affidavit of Death

The Hawaii affidavit of death is appropriate for use by a surviving joint tenant or a beneficiary identified in a recorded transfer on death deed.

To formally initiate the transfer of title, record an official copy of the deceased owner's death certificate. Include the affidavit when submitting the death certificate to the Bureau of Conveyances. Additionally, if the property is registered in Land Court, the Certificate of Title must be amended to reflect the death.

This is an important step because it contributes to a clear chain of title (ownership history), which should, in turn, make future sales of the property less complex. It also serves as public notice of the change in the property's status.

Each case is unique, however, so contact an attorney for complex situations or with specific questions.

Jina N. said: Awesome site!! You guys really make it simple to understand and access any Deeds that I need. I know you keep very up to date forms, as my county is hard core when it comes to the smallest of details, even compared to every other county across the state. Yet you made it simple and quick, and I never had to redo anything. Even the clerk was impressed that I had it filled out correctly the first time, as that usually never happened. Even the size of type/font and the margins were perfect. That saved a lot of time, money and most of all, frustration. I've recommended you to relatives, friends and co-workers. Thanks to the staff at deeds dot com !! I truly appreciate you. j
