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.
