Landlord - Tenant Matters
The office of Community and Neighborhood Resources (CNR) offers help answering questions regarding:
- Lease termination
- Security deposits
- Housing discrimination
- Disputes, differences or conflicts with neighbors, tenants, landlords or property management
Tenants have legal rights. However at times tenants are not knowledgeable about these rights and how to legally protect these rights. The same can be said about landlords, as they have legal rights and may not be as knowledgeable as they should. Most landlord/tenant problems can be solved by communicating between the landlord and tenant. When a solution cannot be worked out, our office offers Longmont residents mediation, or you may wish to consult an attorney for legal advice or counsel.
Important Housing Law Update:
House Bill 19-1118 – Time Period To Cure Lease Violation - Signed into Act: May 2019
Summary: the bill amends the current law to require a landlord to provide a tenant 10 days to cure a violation for unpaid rent or any other condition or covenant of a lease, other than a substantial violation, before a landlord can initiate eviction proceedings.
If the last day of the time period to cure a lease violation is a Saturday, Sunday or legal holiday the period is extended to include the next day which is not a Saturday, Sunday or legal holiday
