How Do I Get My Security Deposit Back?
Security deposits must be returned, in full, within one month after the termination of the lease. A lease may specify a different time period, but cannot exceed 60 days. At the end of the lease period, tenants may be expecting their security deposit returned to them. Security deposits held by the landlord must be returned unless the landlord can show specific cause as to the retention of any portion of the security deposit. If any portion of the security deposit is being retained, the landlord MUST send to the former tenant notice detailing the exact reasons for retention of the deposit. If the landlord does not send this written notice to the tenant within the time period prescribed, all rights to any portion of the security deposit are forfeit. If you have not received your security deposit or your landlord has refused to return your security deposit, contact Denver Landlord Tenant Lawyer now to review your case.
What If My Landlord Keeps My Security Deposit?
A landlord who wrongfully keeps a security deposit is subject to damages in the amount of three times the total security deposit plus attorney's fees and court costs. Tenants who have not had their deposit returned to them without written notice of the exact reason for retention of the security deposit may retain an attorney and file suit against their landlord and receive compensation and damages. Landlords may legally keep security deposits for certain reasons such as damage to the premises beyond reasonable wear and tear, unpaid rent, abandonment of premises, or nonpayment of utility bills by the tenant. If you have not received your security deposit or your landlord has refused to return your security deposit, contact Denver Landlord Tenant Lawyer now to review your case.
Can I Install Electric Car Charging Stations At My Rental Property?
Colorado allows tenants or landlords to install electric car charging facilities at residential rental properties. The landlord or tenant may pay for the installation. However, if the tenant pays for the installation and is not reimbursed by the landlord, the charging station is the property of the tenant and may be either removed at the end of the lease, or bought by the landlord or next tenant.
Colorado has seen fit to enact certain statutes governing the installation of electric car charging facilities on rental properties within the state. The statutes govern who must pay for the installation of the charging station, who owns the charging station, and even what kind of fees may be charged to reserve a parking space next to the charging station. If you have questions about installation of a car charging station at your residential property, contact Denver Landlord Tenant Lawyer to review your lease or questions.
