Hawaii Eviction Laws

Termination and Eviction in Hawaii

An immediate unconditional notice to quit and vacate may be used when occupants are causing or threatening to cause irremediable damage to any person or property.

A five day notice to quit may be used for a second failure to abate a nuisance within 24 hours of receiving notice. Other violations may be served with a 10 days notice to cure: if it has not ceased, must wait another 20 days to file for eviction; 24 hour notice may be provided to cease a nuisance: if it has not ceased in 24 hours, a 5 day notice to cure must be served before filing an eviction.
