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!
