Legal Information: Colorado
Laws current as of September 13, 2018
If you are a tenant in Colorado, your lease cannot be terminated solely because you are a victim of domestic violence, domestic abuse, unlawful sexual behavior, or stalking, or because you have requested emergency assistance (such as from a peace officer) in response to a situation involving one of these forms of abuse. Also, you cannot be fined for requesting emergency assistance and you cannot waive (give up) your right to call for such assistance. Additionally, you can terminate your lease early if you are a victim of domestic violence, domestic abuse, unlawful sexual behavior, or stalking with minimal penalties.
