Landlord Rights

Protecting Your Interests in Landlord/Tenant Matters

Hawaii landlord/tenant laws are designed to protect the rights of both landlords and tenants. However, these laws can be complex and difficult to understand, especially when landlords and tenants do not agree on their interpretation. At the Law Offices of Reuben S. F. Wong, we represent residential and commercial landlords' rights in a variety of real estate transactions and disputes. From drafting residential or commercial leases to handling tenant complaints, our firm provides practical representation to protect our clients' interests. We represent individual and corporate landlords in Honolulu, Hawaii, and surrounding areas.

We understand that your property represents a significant financial investment. To protect your rights in landlord/tenant disputes, contact our firm for a free consultation and case evaluation with one of our experienced real estate lawyers.

Handling Tenant Evictions in Honolulu, Pearl City, Kahala, Hawaii Kai and Throughout Honolulu County

Our firm represents landlords' rights in eviction actions in addition to other landlord/tenant disputes. We focus on guiding clients through the entire process, taking time to explain their rights and options in detail. Our representation includes:

  • Drafting notices of eviction that set reasonable expectations and deadlines
  • Negotiating amicable resolutions between landlords and tenants, if possible
  • Filing complaints with the proper court and jurisdiction if necessary

In certain jurisdictions in Hawaii, the court may allow a rent-trust fund to handle issues of nonpayment, one of the primary reasons for eviction. Instead of paying rent directly to the landlord, tenants pay disputed rent into a trust held by the court. If permitted, rent-trust funds offer an efficient alternative to pursing full eviction proceedings. Our attorneys will review your case and help you determine whether pursuing a rent-trust fund is an option for you.
