Colorado Residential Lease Agreement Template – PDF – Word
The Colorado residential lease agreements are contracts used by landlords in order to legally setup a rental arrangement on a monthly basis with a lessee (tenant). The length is usually one (1) year but may be any term as agreed upon by the parties involved.
It is recommended that in Colorado that a property owner seek the validation of the tenant’s profile by having he or she fill out a credit application to make sure the person is who they claim to be. This will allow a landlord to ensure that the person’s job, credit, and background report/history is valid and worth qualifying for a legal contract on the premises.
The required disclosures should be forwarded along with this agreement to notify the tenant about the property (For Example; if the building was constructed prior to 1978 he or she will be made aware of the Lead Based Paint that may or may not exist on the property).
