August's Legal Tidbit

Question: I think my tenant has moved. Do I have to post a notice or do an eviction?

Answer: Generally, no. However, there is no “self-help” eviction in Colorado. So, make sure that the tenant has said or done something which indicates an intent to vacate (surrender of keys is the best indicator of intent to vacate). If in any doubt, serve a notice and do the eviction because it will provide civil and criminal immunity from liability to the landlord if the tenant comes back and claims damages for the loss of his stuff.
