Lastly, as a tenant, it is your responsibility to know the grounds for eviction and understand how this process takes place. Hopefully, you never have to use these.
Colorado state law identifies grounds for legal cause of eviction as the tenant failing to make rent payments, violating the lease agreement, or committing a serious or violent act. If eviction occurs for any one of these reasons, the lease agreement or your right to possession can be terminated by the rental housing provider/agent/owner.
You will be served a demand by the rental housing provider/agent/owner and you, as the tenant, are given three full days to respond to this demand, which expires at midnight three full days after the service date.
If the demand is not met, you will be contacted with a court date and the eviction will proceed in court. If you feel that you have grounds to dispute the eviction, you can file an Answer with the court and a hearing date will be set.
If judgment is in favor of the rental housing provider/agent/owner and Judgment for Possession is granted to them, they have the right to proceed with a Writ of Restitution, which will notify you with a set date to be completely moved out as authorized by the court. The Sheriff also receives the Writ of Restitution and this physical move out date.
If you are unsure how to complete this or have any questions, be sure to ask the local Sheriff when they call to schedule the move-out date. Different time periods may apply to various types of housing.
