Landlords facing the process of evicting a tenant are often hesitant regarding hiring an attorney in hopes to save expenses. However, Colorado Statutes provide for attorneys fees to be awarded to successful landlords, subject to certain exceptions.
Subsequent violations of a lease contract are grounds for an eviction in Colorado under statute. However, those subsequent evictions only qualify for eviction when it can be shown that the previous violations were given the same treatment as the notice requirements under law.
Landlords who perform their own evictions may run into more problems than they anticipate regarding a notice of eviction. Colorado laws regarding the written demand for possession are strict, and must be strictly complied with or the eviction case may be dismissed.
