How much time we have to give our landlord before we can move out? Our lease says nothing about what happens at the end of the lease or if it expires. It also says nothing about a set amount of time we need to give her before we move out. It’s very barebones it seems.
Assuming your rent was due every month (e.g., on the first day of each month) you would have a month-to-month tenancy following the expiration of the agreed upon lease term. Because nothing is mentioned in your lease regarding notice, the default rule is that you may terminate your tenancy by...Read more »

You need a lawyer. Sometimes a letter from an experienced animal attorney, one who specializes in ESAs and service animals, especially, is enough to put a hold on the eviction and stop it. But you definitely need legal counsel.
Your statement was a little confusing, though. If it’s an...Read more »
However, the landlord will not change the lease. Can tenants compel the landlord to update the lease by dissolving the original agreement and creating a new lease with only one of the existing tenants?
The tenants are offering to pay for the inconvenience.
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 as... 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 stay.... 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.
One year lease through 30 June 2019. We notified landlord of our intent to vacate the property one month early back in April 2019. 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 »
What are my legal remedies for the following situation:

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 »
