STAND. COM. REP. NO. 15
RE: H.B. No. 244
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2021
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Water & Land, to which was referred H.B. No. 244 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO LAND RECORDATION,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to clarify the data requirements for land recordation by the Bureau of Conveyances, on land other than fee simple time share interests deregistered by the Land Court, to include a plan of the parcel or parcels sought to be deregistered that includes a map and description prepared by a licensed professional surveyor.
Your Committee finds that the existing Land Court deregistration does not ensure that landowners who voluntarily deregister their properties are in possession of a proper map and legal description for their land to replace those that become inaccurate or inapplicable upon deregistration. This measure ensures that lands deregistered have the proper documentation expected of all other land not registered with the Land Court.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Water & Land that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 244 and recommends that it pass Second Reading and be referred to your Committee on Judiciary & Hawaiian Affairs.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Water & Land,
DAVID A. TARNAS, Chair
