READ the whole lease before signing it. If you are a first time renter in the State of Hawaii, make sure to read all the fine print. I know it is a lot of reading, but it will give you a general understanding of what is expected of you during the lease term.
By law, You are not to be charged more than a full months rent as Security Deposit. If you have a pet the landlord SHOULD NOT be collecting a Pet Deposit. A professional Property Manager is aware of the laws, however if you are renting directly from the homeowner they may not be aware of all the laws, so Renter Beware!
