Homeowners Associations and Cooperatives
The Hawaii Real Estate Commission only has limited authority and jurisdiction over condominium association of units of owners (AOUOs) governed by HRS, chapter 514B.
The Commission has no authority or jurisdiction over homeowners associations/planned community associations or cooperatives. Homeowners associations/planned community associations are governed by HRS, chapter 421J and cooperatives by HRS, chapter 421I.
Currently, there is no state government agency with jurisdiction, oversight or responsibility of either chapter.
You may call the Hawaii State Bar Association for a legal expert referral at (808) 537-1868 for any issues or concerns regarding homeowners associations/planned community associations or cooperatives.
