Colorado leases are entered into between a lessor and a tenant to enter into a formal contract to lease commercial or residential property. It is recommended that the landlord collect the tenant`s personal data to properly carry out a credit and background check, in order to know if they are credible for the lease.

For example, Colorado`s statute provides that a tenant or a child of a tenant who is a victim of domestic violence or sexual assault may leave the rented unit before the lease expires as long as a protection order or police report on such an incident has been obtained within the last 60 days. and there is an immediate threat to the tenant or child if the tenant of the person who is the subject of the order remains on the site. You must be invited in writing with the date on which the tenant wishes to evacuate.
The tenant is responsible for the rent which must be paid within 90 days during the month in which the rental agreement ends and must not have refunded the deposit until the rent is paid in full. Part or all of the deposit can be used for the amount of unpaid rent if the tenant accepts or does not pay within 90 days. Return on bail: (§ 38-12-103): The lessor has one (1) month to return a deposit to a tenant. The only exception is that another deadline is documented in the rental agreement. In any case, the refund period of the deposit may not exceed sixty (60) days. The landlord cannot use funds from a deposit to cover routine maintenance costs or repairs related to the tenant`s occupancy of the apartment. In addition, he must provide the tenant with a written statement on any deductions from the deposit as well as any funds remaining after authorized deductions. The Colorado Standard Residential Lease Agreement is a contract between a tenant and a landlord.
