A Hawaii sublease agreement is a rental form designed to convey the terms and conditions of a rental arrangement between a tenant (“sublessor”) and the individual subleasing their rental unit (“sublessee” or “subtenant”). In Hawaii, a tenant can sublet rental property to a subtenant without permission from their landlord. However, the landlord may include a provision in the lease stating that their approval is required prior to subleasing. A sublease agreement defines the duties and obligations of the sublessee, such as the amount of rent they must pay, security deposits, utility payments, liability for the property’s condition, guest permissions, and their responsibility to the original lease.
