A Note About Title Premium and Charges:
The schedule of title premium indicates the premium ordinarily applicable to the amount of insurance coverages, and contemplates the ordinary condition of title. If unusual or extraordinary work is required, if more than one chain of title needs to be search, or if court records in more than one circuit must be examined, additional charges may be assessed.
Please use the TG Estimator for transactions up to and including and $3,000,000.
Transactions above $3,000,000 often entail special title risks and may require additional title services. Charges will vary depending on the work required, amount of insurance requested, and endorsements required. Please call (808) 533-6261 for a quotation.
The charge for an ALTA Homeowner’s Policy of Title Insurance and an ALTA Expanded Residential Loan Policy are ordinarily 110% of the charge for a Hawai’i Standard Owner’s Policy; the charge for an ALTA (extended) Owner’s Policy is ordinarily 150% of the charge for a Hawai’i Standard Owner’s Policy.
Binders, and credits on resales and refinancing transactions involving properties insured within the past 60 months, may be available.
If a title order is canceled, a reasonable cancellation fee based on the services provided may be charged; however, no cancellation fee will be charged if the transaction does not close by reason of the failure to obtain loan approval.
Subdivision/Condominium/Vacation Ownership Rates: Since each project is unique, special contract rates can be arranged.

A Note About Escrow Services :
An initial deposit of not less than $500.00 is required to open an escrow.
The charges stated herein are for ordinary transactions. Additional charges may be assessed for non-broker escrows; use of forms not approved by the Hawai’i Association of Realtors; agreements of sale transactions; or if additional work is required.
Escrow transactions for amounts in excess of $3,000,000 may entail special or additional escrow services. Please call (808) 521-0211 for a quotation.
We reserve the right to withhold seller’s proceeds in “special” recording situations (for example, transactions whose documents record at a time other than 8:01 a.m.), until the title records can be reviewed to confirm the absence of adverse claims.
If an escrow transaction is canceled, a reasonable cancellation fee based on the services provided may be charged; however, we will not charge an escrow fee if escrow is canceled due to the failure to qualify for a loan.
Refinance escrow transactions for amounts in excess of $3,000,000 may entail special or additional escrow services. Please call for a quotation.
The state of Hawai’i’s applicable general excise tax will be added to all charges.
