Landlord / Tenant Law – Evictions (FED), Deposit issues, Leases
Whether you’re a landlord or a tenant, you’re involved in a legal relationship that can sometimes involve some messy legal issues. Dan Slater has the expertise to help you in your landlord / tenant problems.
In Colorado, evictions are governed by a process known as “Forceable Entry and Detainer” (FED) actions. The statutes governing evictions are very detailed and very specific. Without the right legal advice, one can end up screwing up and losing some rights and remedies in the process. Dan Slater can help you work your way through this process in a way that most efficiently and accurately preserves your rights.
In addition to strict laws on evictions, Colorado has very specific and strict laws regarding the return of security deposits. An unwary or careless landlord could end up owing a tenant not just the deposit but also additional damages far exceeding the deposit if the landlord isn’t careful. If you’re a landlord and you’re unfamiliar with the security deposit laws in Colorado, give Dan Slater a call. And if you’re a tenant who has lost their security deposit after moving out, you should also set up an appointment to see if your landlord did all they needed to do in order to keep the deposit.
Finally, the best defense against future problems arising in a landlord – tenant relationship is a well-drafted lease. Dan can work with you to ensure that your lease is the best possible contract for your individual situation.
