Gov. Polis Issues Executive Order Providing Assistance for Tenants at Risk for Eviction Due to COVID-19
On April 20, 2021, Gov. Jared Polis issued Executive Order D 2021 088, Providing Assistance for Tenants at Risk for Eviction Due to COVID-19.
The Executive Order Suspends C.R.S. § 13-40-104(1)(d) that require landlords to serve 10-Day Demands For Rent or Possession. Instead, landlords must provide tenants with thirty (30) days’ notice of any default for nonpayment that occurred on or after March 10, 2020 before initiating or filing an action for forcible entry and detainer. Such 30-day notice may extend beyond the expiration of this Executive Order. During this thirty (30) day period, tenants shall have the opportunity to cure any default for nonpayment.
