The Hawaii Residents Rental Agreement (Form RR 301) is a property management agreement that contains the terms of rental and occupancy of an apartment or similar apartment. Before signing the document, tenants and landlords can negotiate certain conditions such as the amount of rent to be paid, the method of payment and the date of payment. Under article 521-43, the landlord must provide the tenant with certain information before the tenant moves into the apartment in question. These include the names of all property owners and any person authorized to act on their behalf. Landlords must also provide tenants with copies of written lease agreements and receipts for rents. Fixed-term leases simply expire on the last day of the contract. You cannot terminate these leases unless it is a non-payment of rent or another material breach of the rental agreement. If you want tenants to stay in the unit, it is recommended to ask tenants in advance for their intentions. Hawaii State allows fees for late fees, but no law regulates the amount. Rent must be paid at the beginning of each month, unless otherwise agreed, in accordance with the provisions of Article 521-21 (b). In the event of an increase in rent, the lessor must note this in writing before the date of entry into force.
In accordance with the provisions of Article 521-21 (d) (e), monthly leases require 45 days before the increase and 15 days` notice for leases of less than one month. Hawaii has no provisions regarding tenants who are victims of domestic violence and their right to terminate a lease prematurely without penalties. In case of non-payment of rent, give an advertisement of 5 days to clear or pay the full rent due. In the case of other breaches of the rental agreement, you terminate the breach within 10 days to remedy the breach. You have the option to resolve the issue yourself after the 10 days have expired and charge the tenant for it. Refund of deposits: the period for refunding the deposit (after possible deductions) is fourteen (14) days after the termination of the rental contract. The owner must also provide in writing a detailed description of the deducted funds, damages and repair costs. An owner who does not do so in time renounces his right to money. The only exception is if the tenant leaves without proper notice. A written lease from Hawaii is required for any lease longer than one year, otherwise it is considered monthly. While an oral agreement for shorter rental terms can be comfortable, it will be difficult for a court to rule in your favor in the event of a dispute over the party who has certain obligations or if you and your tenant have agreed on certain conditions. Your rental agreement must have basic conditions as well as optional conditions that address the general situations of landlords/tenants.
Consider including the following terms in your rental agreement: There are certain conditions and provisions that you may not include in your rental agreement: If you accept the deposit, you must provide the tenant with a written inventory of the facility and the condition of the unit for verification and signature. A copy must be given to the tenant….
