<This section is suspended through the COVID-19 disaster emergency relief period. See Executive Order No. 20-04 (2019 HI EO 20-04) signed on April 16, 2020, and executive actions issued subsequent thereto.>
In every case where a writing of any description or a copy of any writ is required
by law to be filed or recorded in the bureau of conveyances in order to create or
preserve any lien, right, or attachment upon unregistered land, such writing or copy,
when intended to affect registered land shall be filed or recorded and registered
with the assistant registrar of the land court. In addition to any particulars required in such papers for recording with records
of deeds, it shall also contain a reference to the number of the certificate of title
of the land to be affected and also, if the attachment, right, or lien is not claimed
on all the land in any certificate of title, a description sufficiently accurate for
identification of the land intended to be affected. This section and section 501-138 do not apply to liens for internal revenue taxes payable to the United States or
to liens for state taxes payable to the state department of taxation.
