Module 1: The Hawaii SAFE Act

The Hawaii SAFE Act establishes the processes and procedures under which licensed and registered residential mortgage loan originators conduct their operations throughout the State of Hawaii. Individuals desiring to practice and those who are actively practicing mortgage origination activities ultimately leading to the securitization of real property located throughout any of the Hawaiian Islands should be familiar with the requirements and prohibitions of Hawaii Revised Statute (HRS) Chapter 454F. This module will review some of the most important components of HRS § 454F.

Module 2: Hawaii Interest and Usury

In this section of the course we're going to review the regulations pertaining to maximum interest rates, the Hawaii interest and usury regulations, codified in Hawaii Revised Statutes Chapter 478.

Module 3: Trade Regulations and Practices

Unfair and deceptive practices are detrimental to consumers' confidence towards our industry. In this section we'll review unfair practices with respect to real estate transactions, mortgage deed of trusts, and real estate contracts.
