STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1690
RE: H.B. No. 244
Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi
President of the Senate
Thirty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2021
State of Hawaii
Your Committees on Ways and Means and Judiciary, to which was referred H.B. No. 244, H.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO LAND RECORDATION,"
beg leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to clarify the data requirements for land recordation by the Bureau of Conveyances regarding land other than fee simple time share interests deregistered by the Land Court.
More specifically, the measure requires the inclusion of a plan of the parcel or parcels sought to be deregistered that includes a map and description prepared by a licensed professional surveyor, in accordance with specified statutory requirements.
Your Committees received written comments in support of this measure from the Hawaii Land Surveyors Association, Wes Thomas Associates, and ten individuals.
Your Committees find that the inclusion of additional parcel information, as required by this measure, will establish a clear standard for the mapping and describing of designated lands and thus help to ensure the overall accuracy of land deregistrations processed by the Bureau of Conveyances.
Your Committees have amended this measure by making technical nonsubstantive amendments for purposes of clarity, consistency, and style.
As affirmed by the records of votes of the members of your Committees on Ways and Means and Judiciary that are attached to this report, your Committees are in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 244, H.D. 1, as amended herein, and recommend that it pass Third Reading in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 244, H.D. 1, S.D. 1.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committees on Ways and Means and Judiciary,
KARL RHOADS, Chair
DONOVAN M. DELA CRUZ, Chair
