A Hawaii 2-day notice to enter is used by a landlord to inform a tenant of an upcoming entry onto the property. It must be provided at least two days before the landlord enters the unit and should provide the relevant details (e.g., time and date of entry, the purpose of visit). The notice is used for non-emergency purposes such as fixing property defects, showing the unit to potential tenants or buyers, or inspections.

Emergency Access (§ 521-53(b)) – Landlords are not required to give any prior notice to enter a rental unit in an emergency. The landlord can also enter without notice if the premises appears to be abandoned, under a court order, or if the tenant has been absent for a significant amount of time (§ 521-70(b)).


Hawaii statutes require landlords to provide at least 2 days’ notice to a tenant before entering their dwelling.
