Colorado Landlord Tenant rules are summarized throughout the form template in light-green, Colorado Assist boxes, so that you can refer to them and be sure that your document is compliant.This document also meets lease requirements for the cities of Aurora and Denver.
In addition, since no two rental situations are the same, you may select from dozens of additional clauses and regulations to customize the lease document. Attach or remove an addendum or rule with a simple click. Or, add wording of your own choosing in numerous optional fields throughout the process.
Finally, we apply relevant case law in the phrasing of both default and optional clauses, so that they specifically minimize Landlord exposure to lawsuits.
