What is Colorado's “Warranty of Habitability” law?
When a landlord rents a unit, they create a “Warranty of Habitability,” or a promise that the home is safe and healthy to live in. If there is an issue in a home that makes it unsafe to live in, renters can ask their landlords to fix the issue quickly. Use our Rental Safety Check to see if you have an issue and if the landlord is responsible for fixing it.
