Hawaii Pet Deposit Bill Signed by Governor Abercrombie

Hawaii pet deposit bill signed by Governor Neil Abercrombie
Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie has recently signed a group of bills relating to protecting Hawaii’s animals.  Included in these is a bill that those interested in buying/selling Hawaii real estate should pay attention to: SB328.  This bill allows for “Pet Deposits” to increase rental options for tenants with pets.  Essentially, the bill will allow for more Hawaii pet-friendly opportunities, as it will address the financial concerns of both landlords and property owners.  Moreover, more of Hawaii’s property owners will probably be more likely to allow renters to have pets under the protection of the bill.
