Hawaii Disclaimer of Property Interest
Under the Hawaii Revised Statutes, the beneficiary of an interest in property may renounce the gift, either in part or in full (HRS Chapter 526 Uniform Disclaimer of Property Interests Act). Note that the option to disclaim is only available to beneficiaries who have not acted in any way to indicate acceptance or ownership of the interest ( 526-13).
The disclaimer must be in writing and include a description of the interest, a declaration of intent to disclaim all or a defined portion of the interest, and be signed by the disclaimant ( 526-5 (c)).
Deliver the disclaimer within nine months of the transfer (e.g., the death of the creator of the interest) to the personal representative of the decedent's estate or the trustee, or file it with the court having authority to appoint such a person or to enforce the trust ( 526-12). In order to avoid any ambiguity regarding the chain of title for real property, record a copy of the disclaimer in the Bureau of Conveyances ( 526-6).
A disclaimer is irrevocable and binding for the disclaiming party and his or her creditors, so be sure to consult an attorney when in doubt about the drawbacks and benefits of disclaiming inherited property. If the disclaimed interest arises out of jointly-owned property, seek legal advice as well.

Sandra S. said: Very helpful, with blank and sample completed documents. The only thing I was confused about was the "legal description" of my property. The documents weren't too helpful on what that meant. Otherwise they were great. It saved me $200 to prepare these myself.
Reply from Staff: Thank you for your feedback. We really appreciate it. Have a great day!
