Asked in Real Estate Law and Landlord - Tenant for Colorado

Q: can a owner give me 30 day notice to vacate for no reason other than not a good fit after I’ve been there a week?

I just moved into to and owner occupied home I have the whole garden level space. After 1 week owner says not a good fit provides a 30day notice to vacate. I have had no violations, not loud it’s just me and my 13lb mini Aussie. I’m disabled and hispanic so I’m not sure if she is discriminating against me for one of these reasons. Everywhere I researched says I can’t be kicked out for no cause when we have a completed lease agreement. Any help or advice would be appreciated

A: It depends. You need to talk to an attorney. If you are on a month-to-month lease, they may be able to terminate without cause on a 30-day notice. IE, they may not need a reason. Regardless, they need to follow both the lease and forcible detainer statute.

Regardless, more information would be needed. Again, talk to an attorney.
