Is it illegal for a landlord to collect double rent in the state of Colorado?

Tracy, CA |

We moved out at the end of April but our lease wouldnt end til June so we paid for May and June rent but someone moved in at the end of May. So are we entitled to get our money back for the month of June?

  1. You would have to ask an attorney in Colorado to confirm, but it seems to me that the landlord does have a duty to "mitigate damages" by finding a replacement tenant. Since it appears from your facts that the landlord did find a new tenant to pay for June, you ought to get back your rent for June.
