A: In Colorado, a property manager is generally required to be licensed to engage in property management activities. According to the Colorado Real Estate Commission, anyone who performs property management services, including initiating or filing evictions, on behalf of another person or entity must hold a valid real estate license.

If the property manager handling your eviction is not licensed as required by state law, their actions may be considered illegal, and you may have grounds to challenge the eviction in court.
