COLORADO RESIDENTIAL LEASE ISSUES

Residential lease disputes arise due to several reasons, such as unpaid rent, property damage, lease violations, security deposit issues, and eviction proceedings.

Protect your business and your property by ensuring your lease documents are updated and legal. Protect your tenants by ensuring your contracts are legal and well-written, minimizing the likelihood of disputes. The past couple years in Colorado have brought several changes to landlord-tenant law, and these changed directly affect your leases.

Some of the most hotly litigated leasing issues typically involve:

  • Rent Payment Terms
  • Property Damage: who’s responsible for what?
  • Noise, Conduct, and Pets
  • Late Fees
  • Early Termination and Holdover
  • Authorized persons and subleasing
  • Security Deposit Returns
  • Property Insurance issues
  • Warranty of habitability & mold

However, this is not an exhaustive list. Remember that a lease is both a 1) contract and a 2) property right. Contract law applies to leases, but the tenant also has a limited property interest in the dwelling. And, state, municipal, and federal discrimination and housing laws apply. For these reasons, you need to make sure your lease documents are updated, accurate, and legal.

Another common mistake we see is that landlords provide a tenant with a separate “tenant handbook” or “tenant manual/instructions.” It’s important you have a lawyer review not just your lease agreement, but also any other documents you’re providing to the tenant or making the tenant sign that you don’t think are part of the “agreement.” Being wrong here can cost you at a landlord/tenant trial.
