we have renters that want to walk stating unsafe conditions. they believe that the house has pet dander that is making them all sick from the previous tennant. we have had the carpets cleaned but they are constant complainers and now we think that they see this as a way to get out of a lease...is this what they can do? also, what can we do about keeping their deposit and asking for an extra 3 months rent? their lease will end in october 2010.

thank you

As a side note, since we have a CA person in this discussion, you should watch Pacific Heights with Michael Keaton to learn about CA tenant rights and the real legal results. They are similar to CO in how they are enforced, which will give you an idea of how landlord/tenant disputes can put the landlord in jail or worse!

HB 1356 is Colorado's tenant bill of rights. If it is an element of "habitability" then they are within their rights and you can not evict or it is presumptively retaliatory, which can subject you to fines and jail. You should call an attorney. From my perspective (non-licensed attorney/broker) the complaints you described are not legitimate concerns and do not rise to the level of a habitability claim. But again, call an attorney! I would suggest Culver @ 303-345-3508. Just leave him a message.

Ask for documentation from an MD for proof (whole family?)


I'm in California and if tenants can prove unsafe invironment, landlord is out of a tenant.
