Good morning and Happy New Year! My son Alex lives in Colorado Springs CO and his landlord (a community) has told him that he must be out of his rental by January 7. They claim that he has not responded to request for remediation of some issues in his apartment. He doesn't feel it would be worth flighting this. The landlord said that if he stays beyond January 7, the sheriff will close the apartment and put him in legal jeopardy, including sending sheriffs to the home. He may have an alternate location but this isn't yet confirmed. My question is what can he do at this point. He has not paid January rent as he is supposed to vacate next week. He will make sure the premises are cleaned before he departs but what obligation (monetarily) is payable in the meantime to discharge any responsibilities on his part. Is there a standard formula in this case? Thank you. ***** Boca Raton FL
JA: Just to clarify, where is the apartment located? These laws can vary based on state.
Customer: 80904 zip code in Colorado Springs
JA: What are the terms of the lease? Any issues related to maintenance or upkeep?
Customer: I think it is pretty standard for Colorado. Some of the issues the office mentioned included blinds on the window or a lock he put on the door because he was concerned about possible forced entry from his ground-floor apartment.
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: That's the general outline of the case.
