Frequently Requested Documents & Info for Listing Agents

Congratulations on your new listing in Waialae Iki! We’ve attempted to provide you with some of the documents that you will need as part of the transaction, and are working on adding more documents to this site. Click on the following links to access the PDF documents.

No Short Term Rentals

Renting property through VRBO or any other short-term vacation site is not only prohibited by the Waialae Iki Ridge Covenants and Restrictions, but it is also illegal per the City and County of Honolulu.   If your client plans of renting their property, or a portion of their property, on a short-term basis they can be heavily fined by the city.  Neighbors have been informed that if they know of someone who is renting a property illegally, they can anonymously report the violation either online via this link (24/7) or via phone at 808-768-8127 (7:45am to 4:30pm).

The view channel and actual protected “view plane” are described in Article III of Building Restrictions for Unit III and Unit IV, respectively, (page 6). The Building Restrictions and Declaration of Protective Provisions are both recorded covenants and restrictions. We send you a copy of the view channels, taken directly from the original Bishop Estate blue print, as a courtesy to Buyers, so they can actually read some of the elevations for the protected view planes.

There are no view channels or Building Restrictions for Unit II; just the restrictions contained in the Declaration of Protective Provisions.

Since Bishop Estate sold the fee interest in the land to the individual homeowners, there has been no architectural review board and no organized enforcement of these covenants and restrictions. As stated in the Declaration of Protective Provisions, it is now the homeowner’s responsibility to make sure their renovations are in compliance with these covenants. If a buyer is thinking of renovating, we suggest passing these documents onto their architect, with a request to provide a letter stating that the plans drawn are in compliance with all of the CC&R’s.

Waialae Iki Ridge Community Association (WIRCA) does not provide other home owner association documents, because it is not a mandatory HOA. Roughly 60% to 70% of homeowners voluntarily pay $250 per year, primarily to support a roving security guard service, which has been very effective in reducing the crime rate in our neighborhood. If the current owner has paid dues for the current year, your buyer may choose to have those dues pro-rated in escrow and immediately join the Association. Either way, upon closing, we will attempt to contact the new owner to welcome them to the neighborhood and provide them with a welcome packet of information about WIRCA and invite them to join if they have not paid their pro-rata share of the annual dues. If you need further assistance, please use the contact form below, to make your inquiry. We’d be happy to help.
