Hawaii Correction Deed

Use the correction deed to correct an error in a previously recorded deed of conveyance in Hawaii.

Errors in a previously recorded deed can be corrected by preparing and recording a correction deed. This helps to prevent title flaws, which may cause problems when the current owner attempts to sell the property. The correction deed does not convey title; instead, it confirms the prior conveyance.

The corrective deed must be executed from the original grantor to the original grantee. Apart from supplying the corrected information, it must identify the reason for correcting and reference the prior deed by date, recording number (book and page or document number), and place of recording.

For small errors in various sections of the prior deed, such as typos and minor omissions of names or parts of names, marital status, or spouse's information, a correction deed is the right vehicle. When correcting the legal description, have both the grantor and the grantee sign the corrective deed and confirm the correction.

For certain types of changes, a correction deed may not be appropriate. Adding or removing a grantee, for example, or making material changes to the legal description, especially deleting a portion of the originally transferred property, may require a new deed of conveyance instead of correction of the original deed. When in doubt about how to correct an error, consult with a lawyer.

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

Amanda S. said: Thank you! My husband and I went in the get notary stamps for a Special Warranty Deed and a Post Nuptial Agreement. The representative was very knowledgeable and thorough with the notary process. She made sure we read and understood all documents that we were signing and they required us to recite in sworn statements that everything there was true and understood! I will be using the notary service again at Bank of America! The representative was very respectful and had a nice smile the entire time to make our visit great!

Lindsay B. said: The form was easy to fill out. The only problem I had was on the Notary page I live in a different state than the property and I couldn't change the name of the state or county where the notary had to sign.
