Q: Can I terminate my lease early?
A: No. Your lease is a binding contract that both you and the landlord have agreed to honor. The good news is that both of you are equally on the hook, this can also be the bad news if you need to break your lease early. In some instances you may be able to negotiate a settlement if the owner agrees. In general it can be costly. You would be required to cover any marketing and vacancy costs incurred.
Q: If the Landlord Sells my Property do I have to move?
A: No. In Colorado the new owner is required to honor the terms of your written lease. Please protect yourself and have any agreements in writing since "verbal agreements are worth the paper they are written on!"

A: No, In Colorado any funds labeled as DEPOSIT are 100% Refundable and must be reconciled at the end of your lease.
Q: How long do I need to wait for my deposit?
A: Colorado Statute requires your deposit to be returned in 30 days unless your lease agrees to a longer term, up to 60 days maximum. Many municipalities are very slow to close out the final utility bills which is the most common delay.
