The Landlord-Tenant Legal Practice at the Law Firm of John F. Miquel
Leases are the backbones of landlord tenant relationships. As such, it is crucial that they are properly written, that they are specific to a given property/situation and that they include the necessary provisions. When generic, outdated or unconventional lease agreements are relied on, costly misunderstandings can arise, leading to landlord tenant disputes.
There are specific grounds for eviction in Colorado, and when these grounds exist, a landlord has to follow a specific procedure in order to legally evict a tenant.
The Arapahoe County attorney at the Law Firm of John F. Miquel is skilled at guiding landlords through the eviction process and helping tenants protect their rights if they have been served with an eviction notice.
Although security deposits are considered to be tenant’s property under Colorado law, landlords can retain part or all of these deposits in certain situations. For instance, while landlords can retain a portion of security deposits to clean units or repair damage a tenant caused and didn’t fix, landlords cannot retain these funds to repair things considered to be “normal wear and tear.”
Understanding how security deposits should be handled is important for both landlords and tenants, as it can help them understand when their rights may have been violated and it is time to take action.
