Hawaii Standard Residential Lease Agreement Template
The Hawaii standard residential lease agreement is structured around a one (1) year lease with reoccurring monthly payments. The form will provide information regarding the cost of rent, security deposits, and the rights and responsibilities of both parties. For the lease agreement to go into effect, both the landlord and tenant must agree to the terms and conditions and sign the document. If a security deposit was demanded, this will often be paid at the time of signing as well. It is recommended that prior to executing the lease, the landlord review his/her applicants with a rental application.
