JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: No
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Are you connecting me to someone knowledgable about HAWAII tenancy law?

Hi. Thank you for using the Just Answer website. What exactly is your legal question so that I know if I can be of assistance. Are you simply wanting to know what your legal recourse is for their breaking the lease?

Also, are you the landlord? When you say that you drafted a DIY lease, did you use a template at all or did you just make something up on your own? If you used a template, was it a HI specific template?
