2015-2016 Hawaii Core Part A: Condominiums Structure and Sales & 2015 Legislative Update
This course focuses on the laws and issues related to condominiums, along with a summary of new real estate laws enacted in Hawaii.
Condominium development and conversions are a strong sector of Hawaii’s real estate industry. However, there is often a degree of confusion—among licensees as well as clients—as to what constitutes a “condominium.” This course will help eliminate any lingering confusion by walking through the appropriate statutes and requirements related to condominiums.
In addition, legislative updates have been included. Developed within days of many of these bills becoming law, this course provides licensees with an overview of those changes most pertinent to the Hawaii real estate industry. Bills that will interest most licensees are featured, covering a range of topics including transient accommodations tax, historic property reviews, domestic violence, medical marijuana, residential landlord-tenant close, and multiple others.
