Colorado Official Notice to Quit

Last Modified 12/21/2015


Giving notice is the first step in the eviction process. In Colorado, the Notice to Quit may be served on a tenant by the landlord if a lease agreement has expired and the landlord wants a tenant to move out of the unit for any reason.

The Official Notice to Quit form must be issued before other eviction steps may be taken, including filing an eviction action in court. This Notice to Quit form must be downloaded and filled in by the landlord.

The form includes Colorado language and formatting. It requires the landlord to describe the property and state the deadline for which the tenant must move out. The form must be signed by the landlord, or by the landlord’s attorney or agent.

In order to be enforceable under Colorado law, the notice must be served in advance of the deadline to move out, with the amount of advance notice determined by the length of tenancy:

  • Tenancy of 1 year or longer - give notice 91 days before deadline
  • Tenancy of 6 months to less than 1 year - give notice 28 days before deadline
  • Tenancy of 1 month to less than 6 months - give notice 7 days before deadline
  • Tenancy of 1 week to less than 1 month - give notice 3 days before deadline
  • Tenancy at will - give notice 3 days before deadline
  • Tenancy of less than 1 week - give notice 1 day before deadline

If the tenant has not moved out by the deadline specified in the Notice to Quit, the landlord then may take the next step in the eviction process.
