Opinion Letter No. 93-16

Condo Registry Must Be Disclosed

[OIP Op. Ltr. No. 05-03 partially overrules this opinion to the extent that it states or implies that the UIPA’s privacy exception in section 92F-13(1), HRS, either prohibits public disclosure or mandates confidentiality.]

The State’s Real Estate Commission must disclose its existing computerized condominium association registry (Registry), after segregating individuals’ addresses and telephone numbers. The registry contains the addresses and telephone numbers of individuals, but it does not indicate which of these are “residential” and which are “public.” Because the disclosure of an individual’s residential address and telephone number constitutes a “clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy,” none of the registry’s addresses and telephone numbers may be publicly disclosed.
