Colorado Landlord-Tenant Laws
The landlord-tenant laws in Colorado obligate landlords to provide habitable living conditions for tenants. According to the "Warranty of Habitability" law, landlords must ensure that the rental unit is in good condition and that utilities such as water, electricity, heating, and plumbing are functioning properly before leasing the property.
In compliance with the Warranty of Habitability laws, landlords in Colorado are obligated to make repairs within a reasonable timeframe. Tenants have the right to send a written notice to request repairs, and landlords are given up to 24 hours to address the issue.
Landlords can collect rent, deduct damages from security deposits (if applicable), and seek legal assistance if a tenant violates the lease terms. On the other hand, tenants have the right to expect habitable housing. They can exercise this right by requesting working utilities, timely repairs, and the return of their security deposit upon moving out.
