If a rental home or apartment has a condition that may be dangerous to the renter's health or safety, the law may provide a remedy allowing the renter to terminate the lease if the landlord does not act quickly to correct the problem. Colorado has only recently adopted a warranty of habitability law requiring landlords to provide certain minimal levels of liability in the homes or apartments they rent.
Colorado Rent and Security Deposit Dispute Law Firm
Colorado law requires a landlord to return a tenant's security deposit, or provide a statement detailing why any portion of the security deposit is being retained, within either 30 or 60 days, depending upon the lease documents. If the landlord fails to do so, he or she may have waived any right to keep any part of the security deposit.
Our Boulder lease agreement lawyers are experienced litigators. Trial work is what we do, and we do it well. However, we also represent parties in mediation and arbitration in situations where alternative means of dispute resolution are better suited to your individual landlord-tenant dispute, or where required by the lease agreement.
