State Specific Question About: COLORADO (CO)

I found out my tenant materially misrepresented himself to get me to lease to him----in regards to "no drugs, heavy alcohol use" --------he is not covered under the "protected persons" rights as he is not, nor has he been in, a recognized, certified AA program. I want him out of my rental. He is on a month to month lease with 10 days notice.

Is this a substantial breach of the lease when I specifically addressed drugs and alcohol in the lease and he represented himself as a "non-drinker"??

Thank you --65.114.xxx.xxx

Um, is there some CO law that says you can't terminate without a reason?

Here, in Michigan, on a MTM agreement, I would simply give proper 30-day notice that I am terminating his tenancy. I don't have to argue about whether or not he breached anything or lied about anything. It is much easier to evict without reason, if allowed in your state, than arguing about whether or not he lied to you.

Can you just give notice and end his MTM without mentioning any of this drama?

Agree with John, just give him notice you are not renewing his lease. No other reason needed. In my state 30 days from a rent paying day. Check yiur state. Eveb if your lease, that tenant sign, reads 10 days, go by your state laws. --66.87.xx.xxx

Thank you for the feedback---that was also my first thought on this issue, but wanted to get some feedback as to whether I even have to give a reason, and just terminate the lease. --65.114.xxx.xxx

go the not renewing route and save some headache. Some BS excuse (a lie) would help. My mom's moving back or my kids want there house back.

Don't get into bickering. --74.184.xxx.xx

Have you conducted a breath alcohol test or a field sobriety challenge to the tenant for the alcohol? What narcotics did you find in the blood samples? Are you basing this decision on social media? --76.188.xxx.xxx

Reply to Vee---I do not have to do any of those things---this tenant is renting two rooms in my home---I am a resident landlord and my ad for the room and tenant application was very clear regarding my zero tolerance policy on any of these issues and he signed said lease and tenant application and I did my background checks and credit checks--unfortunately for me, he lied.

Had he been truthful on his application, and was a decent honest person, I would not be terminating his lease.

I am also not going to have any discussion with him as to why I am terminating his lease. --65.114.xxx.xxx

myob: Well, technically, people renting rooms are still "tenants."

Lori: I think what Vee was basically saying was: how do you KNOW that he lied and is now violating the agreement? Is he staggering drunk? Do you just smell something on him? Also, you originally did not mention any "zero tolerance policy" at all -- you just said that you asked on the application. So, this is relevant, I think: Does your lease agreement actually have a written "zero tolerance policy" on alcohol? How is it written/defined?

There is a difference between putting something on an application (that COULD be a lie or COULD have changed since the application) -- and having a written clause in the agreement.

- John...

P.S. Of course, it still doesn't change much since you can terminate without reason anyhow. This is mostly just curiosity now.

Actually, in this case, unless CO has some laws I'm not familiar with, I really don't see that it makes any difference at all.

Gee----myob [GA}---sorry I didn't put enough information in my simple question to satisfy you---didn't think I had to put in a big long story.

Maybe I could get the information I was looking for WITHOUT the rude, snotty reply?

Thank you John for your kind, considerate reply. I did appreciate the common courtesy.

Don't imagine I will be posting any more questions--don't want to IRRITATE anyone and get back responses ALL IN CAPS! --65.114.xxx.xxx
