Lakewood, OH asked in Contracts for Colorado

Q: I left my apt in CO in 2020 & despite many calls, I have yet to receive my deposit. Can I legally do anything about this

My wife and I moved out of our apt in Westminster, CO in 2020. We truly left the place significantly cleaner than it was when we moved in. They told us we would receive a fraction of our deposit. That alone can bring up another legal question in itself. We called so many times asking about when we would receive our deposit to no avail. We're coming up on 3 years to our move out date and still nothing. I have to imagine there's some kind of legal action we can take?

A: There may be potential legal actions you can take. But you should call an attorney ASAP. If you are going on three years, there is a good chance you may toll under the statute of limitations meaning any claim you could bring you can no longer bring because you waited.
