Hawaii has the highest rate of rentership in the nation, with 43% of residents renting the property in which they live. Last year around 1,700 of those renters were evicted by their landlord. According to a new report from non-profit group Lawyers for Equal Justice, 95% of eviction cases in Hawaii resulted in the tenant being evicted.
