A Hawaii 10-day notice to quit is a document informing a tenant that they are currently in breach of their rental agreement and must remedy the breach or quit the premises. Landlords can use this notice if a tenant violates any obligations or restrictions as defined in § 521-52. The tenant is given ten (10) days to remedy the breach or the landlord can terminate the lease and file a legal action to obtain possession of the property. However, if the tenant commits a breach that causes or threatens to cause damage to a person or a breach as defined by § 521-51 (1) or (6), they will be served a notice to quit that does not give them the option of curing the violation (Immediate Notice to Quit).
Laws – § 521-72
Immediate Notice to Quit for Health and Safety – The landlord may terminate a tenant’s lease immediately if the tenant threatens or causes damage to another individual by serving this notice.
