Hi and welcome to JA. I Am Ray and will be the expert helping you today.Here in Hawaii this may not work.In the past Hawaii released liens against life estates but the AG started not releasing liens so the lawyers have since shrunk the amount of life estate you retain to avoid problems.
What they are currently doing is leaving a partial life estate say 1/10.00o life estate and you transfer the rest..
You may want to consult a local NAELA lawyer.The National Association of Elder Lawyers specialize in this kind of transfer..
I appreciate the chance to help you today.Please let me know if you have more follow up.
This can be done by reducing the amount of the life estate retained as I set out above.
