I live in Castle Rock Colorado and I am being told by my water company that anything that goes on with my bill they have to notify my landlord even though I still live in the home. That's an invasion of my privacy why do they need to know anything that goes on with my bills in my house as long... Read more »
Yes it is legal and that is the way utilities in CO operate. Because, if the tenant fails to pay the water bill the landlord will have to pay the debt created by the tenant in order to get the water turned on for the next tenant.
Landlord here. I have a tenant on my lease. Lease does not allow subleasing. His girlfriend is not on the lease, but has been the one staying on property. She's been living in the room for ~50 days. There is another month left on the lease. Because he is paying I've been allowing her to... Read more »
My dog bit a child and our landlord wants him out of our apartment. We don’t want to give him up and our landlord said she would give us a month before we must move. Is a month legally enough time? After the time frame what can our landlord do?
Can your landlord evict you because of your dog's actions? That depends on the language in the lease agreement. If he/she does pursue the eviction he'll have to prove that you violated the lease and/or he properly terminated (in writing) and his Notice is legally enforceable.

Landlord showed property several times prior to our move out and found a new renter to begin leasing on 1 June 2019. We were not charged rent for June because we were... Read more »

We moved out of the home we were renting last month and bought a home. Two days ago, the landlord emailed and gave us a written list of the walkthrough and how much of our security deposit we would be receiving. Today, we receive another email stating that they put a stop payment on the check... Read more »
The issues you bring are valid and likely defenses should this matter go to Court. I recommend you google the Colo Sec Dep Act as it provides stiff penalties for Landlords who do not properly handle and timely provide a written accounting of any security deposit amount withheld for damages.

I recieved a move out statement from a collection company stating that I owe for damages and full replacement of the carpet. I lived in the home with my friend, his wife, their two kids, and a dog. We paid a pet deposit, and pet rent every month the entire time of living there. I know there were... Read more »
If this issue went to court, even if the carpet was new when you moved in, it is unlikely that the court would hold you responsible for more than half the cost of the carpet. Generally, carpet is expected to have a 7 year normal lifespan. As such, half of the useful life of the carpet was...Read more »

If you refuse to return possession the LL will determine if he want to initiate an eviction action. If he does then you will want to show your evidence to the Judge in hopes of creating a contract through March of 2020.
You may consider having an attorney draft a demand letter to your LL...Read more »
This may fall under the Colo Warranty of Habitability which was strengthened earlier this year to give tenants more power in recovering damages. A good first step would be to have an attorney send your landlord a demand letter outlining the issues and your rights.
I have been paying the rent in my name for the entire year. They have not said anything about it. His lease ends in 6 weeks and I am moving out at the end of his lease.
