Aloha eHawaii.gov Subscribers,
We wanted to make you aware of some important changes at the Bureau of Conveyances. The extremely successful eRecording pilot has been discontinued. We hope to bring up the new, integrated eRecording system in the first quarter of 2012. Effective in the next week or two, bulk daily images may have a delay of up to one business day until the deployment of the new receiving system.
The following changes will be effective in the second week of December. We will contact you with more details as soon as a specific date is identified.
- System Names – In order to be more consistent with industry best practices:
- Land Court System documents will be called Torrens Documents. These will include Land Court Orders.
- Regular System documents will be called Abstract Documents.
- Document Numbers – The numbering scheme for Abstract and Torrens documents will change.
- Abstract Documents – Right justified, 9 Digits and an optional letter for multi-action documents
- Torrens Documents – Right justified, 8 Digits and an optional letter for multi-action documents
- The Bureau will be able to void certificates and document numbers may skip sequence.
- Instead of paying by check, BOC customers will have the option of an automatic daily ACH payment via their subscriber account.
For the rest of November, the Bureau will be configuring hardware, training, and getting the new system ready for the cutover to the new system. This also affords those who use their systems to make any changes that may be necessary.
