Hawaii Month-to-Month Lease Agreement
The Hawaii Month-to-Month Lease Agreement is a form used for leasing rental property on a short-term basis. The form is used by those that rent out one (1) or more properties to set detailed rules and requirements that tenants are legally required to abide by. In comparison to the standard lease, monthly leases can be terminated by either party (for any reason) with a minimal amount of notice (45 days for landlords; 28 days for tenants). Because of the increased risk of vacancy, landlords charge higher rent in comparison to leases of a longer nature. Although the short-term nature of the agreement can cause more work on the landlord’s end, a strong benefit is that unruly tenants can be removed far easier since a reason does not have to be provided for ending the lease.
Statute: § 521-71
Required Notice to Terminate: Landlords need to provide a written notice forty-five (45) days in advance, tenants need to provide notice twenty-eight (28) days in advance.
