Honolulu, HI asked in Landlord - Tenant and Personal Injury for Hawaii

Q: Can a Tennant sue his Landlord? And what is the viability of this?

For the last 10 months I have been living in a situation that I can no longer tolerate. No longer hope that it will get better, no longer willing to compromise my health mental, psycial and emotional. I now have been experiencing PTSD, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, from being traumatized by my landlords maliciou, vicious and incomprehensible outrageous toxic behaviors. I live in a two bedroom unit and below be is a two bedroom unit where the landlords reside. I am very good friends with one of the brothers, the older of the two siblings, who also lives in the two bedroom unit below me. For the past 10 months since I have moved in, I have contended with inappropriate, outrageously wrong and potentially illegal behaviors by the landlord. I was invited by both Landlords to move in after they had another tennant move out.

the property is in Honolulu, Hawaii I a writing for you now a list of the behaviors give me a minute.

Entering the unit, whenever he wants night or day, 2:00AM

A: Your situation sounds alarming and unsustainable. You correctly identify your claims as arising out of landlord-tenant legal responsibilities. Your complaints appear to complain of a violation of the covenants of exclusive use and quiet enjoyment by your landlord.

Frankly it will take a further analysis to see if you have claims. We generally have our new client contacts answer a number of questions on intake sheets for all of our prospective clients. You can call our office if you wish to fill out such a new client contact info sheet with Sheri at 808-528-2525.
