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.
Every lease agreement carries with it an implied warranty of habitability. That is, the landlord warrants to the tenant that the premises leased to the tenant for the purpose of habitation is in fact suitable for human habitation. This does not need to be written in your lease in order to be in effect; the implied warranty of habitability is implied in every lease agreement.

Security deposit disputes are a common occurrence between renters and landlords in Denver and the surrounding state of Colorado. Having an attorney like Nathaniel Gilbert can be a big advantage in negotiating and navigating the rules, requirements and deadlines associated with the process of disputing a security deposit.
