  Chapter repealed January 1, 2019.  L 2017, c 181, §§2, 47.

  L 2017, c 181, §45 (effective January 1, 2019) provides:

  "SECTION 45.  Condominium property regimes created prior to July 1, 2006, that were issued an effective date pursuant to [sections] 514A-40 and 514A-41, Hawaii Revised Statutes, may be sold on or after January 1, 2019, without revising any of the governing documents; provided that the developer's public report was active on January 1, 2019, and is accurate and not misleading.  On January 1, 2019, all active, non-expired chapter 514A, Hawaii Revised Statutes, developer's public reports pursuant to sections 514A-40 and 514A-41, Hawaii Revised Statutes, along with their most recent disclosure abstract, if any, will be treated as non-expiring developer's public reports under part IV of chapter 514B, Hawaii Revised Statutes.  Should any pertinent or material changes, or both, occur to the condominium project, the developer shall file an amended developer's public report superseding all prior reports pursuant to chapter 514B, Hawaii Revised Statutes; provided that such projects and their subsequent reports filed under chapter 514B, Hawaii Revised Statutes, shall be exempt from the conversion requirements under section 514B-84(a)(1) and (2), Hawaii Revised Statutes.  Condominium property regimes created prior to July 1, 2006, that were not issued an effective date pursuant to sections 514A-40 and 514A-41, Hawaii Revised Statutes, and did not file a notice of intent pursuant to section 514A-1.5(2)(B), Hawaii Revised Statutes, shall revise their governing documents and register under chapter 514B, Hawaii Revised Statutes, for a developer to offer for sale or to sell condominiums.

  Nothing contained in this Act or in the condominium property act shall be deemed to invalidate any condominium property regime that was validly created under chapter 514A, Hawaii Revised Statutes, prior to July 1, 2006."

  Chapter title amended by L 1988, c 65, §1.

  This chapter was enacted as a restatement without substantive change of chapter 514, as of January 1, 1978.  L 1977, c 98, §§1, 5.  It was enacted as chapter 514 but was redesignated as chapter 514A to avoid confusion with the former provisions.

  This chapter was scheduled for repeal on July 1, 2006, by L 2005, c 93, §6 but L 2006, c 273, §33 repealed L 2005, c 93, §6, deleting the repeal of this chapter.  Parts and sections of this chapter that were repealed by other Acts remain repealed.

  For effect of this chapter, see L 2006, c 273, §2 and §514B-21.
