Hawaii Eviction Process

When evicting a tenant in Hawaii, landlords must follow strict legal procedures, including providing a valid reason such as nonpayment of rent, lease violations, or illegal activity. The eviction process involves serving an eviction notice, waiting for the notice period to end, and potentially filing an eviction lawsuit if the tenant does not comply. Adhering to these steps is crucial to avoid invalidating the eviction.

Evictions in the state can often take between one to four months. The exact timeline depends on the reason for eviction and the tenant's actions in response to each step of the process.
