Hawaii Residential Condos

For many potential buyers of Hawaii real estate, the term ‘Residential Condo’ is new and unfamiliar, as many parts of North America do not have a similar form of ownership. Residential condos are regulated by Hawaii State Law 514B, which dictates how condominiums are created, managed, governed, and operated in the state of Hawaii.

The critical components shared by condos and residential condos are common elements (pool, recreation area), limited elements (actual unit, assigned parking space), have an individual tax-map key number, can be sold independent of each other and have a conforming use of the land as per applicable zoning codes. However, residential condos are assigned a limited common element such to appear and function as a single-family residence, enjoying exclusive right/use of fixtures within said element. These can include a pool, garage, and other features; further defined by fencing the appurtenant area if so desired. Some residential condos share many common elements such as driveways, pool, water meters, while others are fairly autonomous of other ‘apartments’ within the same development. Furthermore, some residential condos will have CCR’s in place, HOA’s collected, Board meetings, etc. while others have minimal (if any) collective participation.
