You have not provided enough specific information, nor do I understand your concern. Please see and attorney with copies of all the documents that you described. It might work for you to write out your concern and have someone edit it for grammar and punctuation in order to make it understandable. The bottom line is that the rent is owed to the landlord and you have to figure out who owes how much.
In addition to real estate law in the State of Hawaii, I also practice federal bankruptcy law. If my answers relate to a bankruptcy question, the following statement applies. "As a debt relief agency, we also help people file for bankruptcy relief under the Bankruptcy Code, including federally supervised repayment plans under Chapter 11, Chapter 12 (farmers and fishers) and Chapter 13."

If you have a rental agreement, you are bound by its terms. If it is a standard agreement, the landlord can give you 45 days notice of termination without any specific reason and a 5 day notice for failure to pay rent. No one will force you to move out until court action is taken by the landlord. However, then you may be liable for the landlord's attorney's fees and court costs.
