Can a Tenant Change the Locks in Hawaii?

Hawaii’s current laws do not fully explain whether a tenant can change their own locks, regardless of whether their landlord has given their approval for such a renovation. However, Hawaii’s statutory code is clear in its prohibition of landlord initiated lockouts. As such, they cannot unilaterally change a unit’s locks without receiving approval from their tenant.
