Hawaii Rental Lease Agreement Forms

When two parties in the United States conclude a deal related to leasing space, they usually create and sign a rental lease agreement. In this document, the landlord (or the owner, the one who is giving out space) and the tenant (or the renter, the one who is receiving space) include vital conditions of the deal, a description of space, the amount to be paid as rent, and information about both parties with contact details.

Rental agreement requirements vary in every state. However, one common thing about rental agreements is that they contain plenty of details and are usually more than 10 pages long.

Hawaii Laws and Lease Requirements

In Hawaii, the laws that regulate relations between the owner and the renter are included in Title 26 (Chapter 481M) and Title 28 (Chapter 521) of Hawaii Revised Statutes. Commercial lease laws are found in Chapter 490 of Title 27.

Rules for Security Deposit

Section 521-44 of Hawaii Revised Statutes regulates the maximum deposit given and the terms of refunding it to the renter.

According to this Section, the maximum amount of security deposit should not exceed one month worth of rent. The deposit does not include any additional fees, such as fees for owning a pet. Also, the owner has to give the deposit back within 14 days (or two weeks) from the day of vacation.

Owner’s Right  to Access

In Hawaii, by law, the owner should give the renter a two-day notice if they wish to access the rented space.

Mandatory Disclosures

Usually, a leasing deal in the US is followed by several disclosures. In Hawaii, when creating a leasing agreement, you will need these ones:

  • Identification disclosure. A rental agreement should have clear information from the owner about every individual who is authorized to be in the leased space. Moreover, the owner has to reveal their tax excise number. This may help to apply for the tax credit with low income.
  • Lead-based paint disclosure. As is customary in many states, the landlord is obliged to provide the renter with a disclosure stating that the house was built prior to 1978 (if applicable).
  • Checklist of Inventory. Before an owner and a tenant have signed any contract or discussed any details orally, an owner has to provide a tenant with a list of items available in the property (for example, furniture pieces).

Common Types of Rental Agreements in Hawaii

There are various types of rental agreements because every rental deal is different. In some cases, you need a template for an apartment lease, while other cases require a contract for a commercial lease, and so on. In Hawaii, you may use one of at least eight types of this agreement:

  • Standard residential agreement
  • Lease with options to purchase
  • Association of realtors agreement
  • Month-to-month agreement
  • Roommate (or room lease) agreement
  • Sublease agreement
  • Commercial lease agreement
  • A letter of lease termination.

Because the templates and lease conditions are different, before starting to create a lease agreement, make sure that you choose the correct contract template.
