This Rental Property Handbook for Landlords and Tenants in the City of Longmont is prepared and distributedby the City of Longmont office of Community and Neighborhood Resources. By providing an overview of legal and other issues relating to the landlord/tenant relationship, it is meant to serve as an information guide to help property managers, owners, and tenants better understand their legal rights and responsibilities, and to build a stronger landlord/tenant relationship


This Rental Property Handbook is not presented as legal advice and is not a legal document, but rather is intended to serve as a general guide to Colorado landlord/tenant law. This Handbook is not intended to be used as a substitute for seeking advice from an attorney. It is presented as a summary of current State of  Colorado and City of Longmont residential landlord/tenant law. When a specific Colorado law is cited, it is from the Colorado Revised Statutes, “C.R.S.”  The most up-to-date latest version of the C.R.S. can be accessed at The information contained in this Handbook may change at any time and there is no promise that this information is current.

If you can not afford legal counsel, the Boulder County Legal Services may be able to help you. Call 303-449-7575 for further information (you must qualify financially). If the problem is not of a legal nature, but a possible building code infraction, contact the Longmont Code Enforcement office at 303-651-8357.

For more information or questions please call Community and Neighborhood Resources at 303-651-8444.
