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.
