Are you moving to Colorado? Denver is one of the fastest growing cities in America. Colorado as a whole added 101,000 people in just one year from July 2014 through July 2015. That astonishing rate was only matched by North Dakota whose growing pains were largely due to an oil boom.
With every new resident that ventures to Colorado, the housing market grows with more and more people on the demand side and the construction and real estate supply side desperately trying to keep pace. This seemingly one-sided market can leave the new Colorado resident feeling at a loss of control as to what goes into their new housing lease. As in, "Well, if I don't take whatever they offer, then someone else will get this apartment and I'll be back to living on my friend's couch." It is important to remember that there are laws that landlords must follow when drafting leases for their new tenants.
At the Law Office of Nathaniel Gilbert, a trusted attorney will look through your new Colorado apartment, house, or condo lease for a flat fee of $25.00 and give you information about the following components of your lease within 24 hours:
