A Hawaii standard residential lease agreement is used by landlords to legally bind a tenant to occupy a property in exchange for monthly rent. In most cases, this agreement is for a period of 1-year with rent being due on the 1st of each month. Before a lease is signed, the landlord will commonly verify the tenant’s credentials and employment through the use of a rental application. The landlord may charge the tenant a fee for providing this verification and, once approved, the parties should authorize an agreement.
