Evictions

Why eviction?

The rent is not paid, the lease terms were violated and your tenant is breaking the law. No landlord enjoys the process, but a legal eviction is a valuable tool for protecting your property and your investment.

How eviction works

Eviction starts with using the right forms and getting educated about the eviction process. Eviction is a series of legal steps that must be completed on time and in order. Bradford’s books and Colorado-specific legal forms provide the most up-to-date paperwork to complete the process, including notices to quit, summons, complaints and orders for judgment.

Educating Yourself About Eviction

Conducting an eviction might sound easy, but Colorado law gives tenants significant rights. If you don’t follow the legal eviction process exactly, tenants can object and lengthen their stay in your property. Whether you are a new landlord, an attorney or an experienced property manager, the Landlord and Tenant Guide to Colorado Leases and Evictions gives you the most up-to-date legal information, a detailed explanation of lease clauses, and a step-by-step guide through the eviction process.

Landlord & Tenant Guide to Colorado Leases and Evictions, 6th Edition

VIEW DETAILS

Landlords: Protect your investment! --- Tenants: Know your rights!

The sixth edition of this popular book contains all the information you need to understand residential leasing and eviction procedures in Colorado. Whether you’re a landlord, tenant, property manager, or attorney, this book will help you fill out standard lease forms and navigate the legal process involved in terminating a residential tenancy. Readers are guided step by step through the leasing and eviction processes using information about common lease clauses, pre-litigation notices, legal documents to be filed, security deposits, and going to court.

This new edition also contains a brand new chapter on short-term and vacation rentals including a detailed discussion on platforms like airbnb.com and vrbo.com. Without settled law, both landlords and tenants would do well to read about the issues raised by the murky relationship among a property owner, any long-term renter of the property, a short-term guest, and state and local governments.

The Guide also contains provisions discussing Pest Control and Mold, Smoke Free Premises, and Medical and Recreational Marijuana use, plus a chapter on Colorado’s Warranty of Habitability Act.

Examples of the legal forms used in Colorado eviction proceedings are provided along with instruction for filling out each form.

Both landlords and tenants can avoid costly mistakes and reduce legal fees by reading this book!

Landlords will learn how to:

  • Give proper notice.
  • Fill out, file, and serve the necessary forms.
  • Avoid violating their tenants’ rights.

Tenants will learn:

  • Defenses to an eviction action.
