I am currently subleasing an apartment through my friends mother. She texted me on the 30th of September, telling me that I had till the 1st of October to get out. I have been paying rent and all other bills in this apartment since I showed up. I Have signed a paper saying I would be there caring for the apartment till May when the lease is up. I asked for 30 days and was told she would be taking my stuff out of the apartment if I did not by the end of the day October 1st. Do I legally have a right o have 30 days to look for something new? Can she kick me out of the house with less than 24 hours notice?
Her notice is likely legally insufficient and would fail if she were to bring an eviction action in the courts. She does not have the right to remove your personal belongings without an order of the court.

It could also be worth sharing that document with your landlord. It references the Colorado statutes (beginning with Colorado Revised Statutes Section 13-40-101 and following) that apply to evictions.
The exact length of notice required depends on the nature/length of your existing lease.
