Hawaii Rental Application Form

Create a high quality document online now!

The Hawaiian Rental Application Form is a tool used to gather information from prospective tenants seeking to rent a space from a landlord or property manager. A landlord’s primary concern is to make sure the space is rented to a fiscally responsible tenant who will obey the rules of the property and remain in accordance of both the law and common consideration to the other tenants. Vetting candidates ensure that that income from the rental is steady and that little if no damages will occur.

Application Fee (No Statute) – There is no statutory limitation on application fees. Consequently, a landlord may demand any amount they deem acceptable.

Security Deposit (§ 521-44(b)) – A landlord may not request a security deposit that exceeds one months rent.
