Hawaii Real Estate CPR/ Residential Condo


For those searching the Hawaii Real Estate market, there is an unfamiliar term that should be of interest: CPR - Condominium Property Regime, also referred to a 'Residential Condo' in search terms. So what is a CPR? In the State of Hawaii, a property may be condominiumized into separate 'condo' units (units of ownership) in most cases with an 'appurtenant' limited common element - so although the underlying land continues to be one parcel, a condominium map further defines each 'unit' and their respective limited common elements. So why CPR and not subdivide instead? Well, in many cases it may simply not be possible to subdivide (not sufficient size or infrastructure, as examples) or it may not be economically viable to do so. The resulting CPR 'condo units' may seem like single-family homes, built as separate structures, having no discernible shared common elements, but for in the legal sense are condominiums. Examples of these are ample in the Launiupoko real estate market, but of course there are other areas throughout the State in which CPR's will be found. There are various unique nuances that must be taken into account when assessing a CPR unit - as an example, in Launiupoko due to agricultural zoning, one of the CPR units is designated as the 'main residence' and the other as a 'cottage' (cannot exceed 1,000 sq. ft. of interior living area). In essence, as the land remains one individual parcel, owners can only construct structures (to then be individual CPR units, if so desired) that would be allowed to be built in the one parcel as subject to zoning and building codes.

The process of CPR'ing a parcel includes submission of a Declaration of a Condominium Property Regime, By-Laws of the condominium association made up of unit owners; a condo map; and Master Deed or Lease, as applicable. Each unit can be sold and mortgaged independent of one another and in many cases there are no association fees as there are no shared common elements.

This is an example of a CPR on Launiupoko, Maui. It looks and acts completely as a Single-Family Residence, but the underlying land has been condominiumized.

In some cases, the underlying land is not sub-divisible due to existing Community Plans, subdivision CC&R's or County Zoning and may be prime opportunities for CPR'ing. An example of this can be found in Maluhia at Wailea, which is one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in the Wailea resort area. Each luxury estate functions as a single-family residence but it is in essence a 'condominium unit'.
