Making a Colorado Lease Agreement
Simple for anyone to build, a Colorado Lease Agreement is a document that is intended to allow residential property owners to lay out the terms connected to their relationship with a tenant. Making this essential contract may decrease the risk of future disputes down the road. You can click the "Make document" button to check out our Colorado Rental Contract sample. Suited for rentals of all residential property types, our rental agreement for Colorado can be used by any landlord in Denver, Colorado Springs, Aurora, or any other city or town located in the Centennial State.
As with any other legal agreement, Colorado Rental Agreements are not legally binding until all parties have signed. This customized document from Rocket Lawyer offers much more than a blank Colorado Lease Agreement template that you might find elsewhere. When you build your Colorado Rental Contract on Rocket Lawyer, you will have the option to access Document Defense® for your contract, which enables an attorney to help you demand payment or enforce your rights.
Whether your property is new or many years old, it's crucial to keep track of all tenancies with a lease. These benefits might inform your decision-making:
In the end, if you choose not to use this document, you might not get to enjoy any of the associated benefits and protections. In addition, if your lease will last longer than 12 months, Colorado law requires that the agreement be documented in writing.

As usual, your agreement from Rocket Lawyer also contains language related to rules related to overdue rent, smoking and/or narcotics, animals, guests, and moving out before the rental period ends. During the process of making your rental contract, you also will be able to include more details about insurance requirements, maintenance procedures, and furnishings. Using the Rocket Lawyer document tool, you are able to make further adjustments and edits, as necessary.
If you have decided to draft this document with Rocket Lawyer, please use the instructions that are presented. Our step-by-step interview will guide you through a few questions about your situation to help us produce your Colorado Lease Agreement. Once you have generated your Colorado Rental Agreement, you may also consider sending your drafted document for review by an On Call attorney. This route is often going to be notably less expensive than finding and working with a traditional attorney at a cost totaling anywhere between hundreds of dollars to thousands.
In order to make this agreement truly legal, you and your tenant must sign it. You can sign electronically by means of RocketSign®. Make sure that everyone has a copy of your final agreement. As a Rocket Lawyer member, you also will be able to print out, copy, and/or download it in PDF format or as a Word file as needed. You may also wish to check out the other real estate documents in our library.
Laws often evolve over time. If you've got any particular doubts or hesitations related to Colorado rental laws, you can connect with an attorney today. Finding a lawyer to comment on your document could be time-consuming and relatively expensive. Some attorneys may not even agree to review rental contracts that they didn't work on. In the event that a lawyer does decide to help you, they would still charge their standard fees for doing it. A more cost-effective option would be through the On Call attorney network. When you sign up for a Premium membership, you can have your documents looked at by an On Call attorney with experience in landlord-tenant matters. Whether you create another Colorado Rental Contract or other documents from our library, we'll be here to support you.
Colorado Lease Agreement Laws: C.R.S. Title 38, Art. 12
The answer to this question could depend on your specific needs; but, no matter where you are, there are several factors to consider when making the decision to rent out property. These include the following: property taxes, the extent of tenants' rights, mandatory disclosures, restrictions on deposits and/or rent, and, finally, how challenging it might be to evict a tenant if there are issues. This being said, as Colorado is home to institutions like the University of Denver, the University of Colorado, and the Colorado School of Mines in addition to tourist destinations like Mesa Verde National Park, Rocky Mountain National Park, and the Garden of the Gods Visitor and Nature Center, there is no lack of potential visitors and tenants if your rental property is close to them.
