The Notice to Quit statute for month-to-month tenants has been changed.
21 Days' Notice to Quit:
Governor Hickenlooper signed a new bill into law this past legislative session that changes the notice to quit for month-to-month tenants. The old law stated that for month-to-month tenancies, the landlord was required to give seven (7) days written notice to terminate the lease or increase the rent. Colorado law now provides that such notices to quit shall be given with twenty-one (21) days' notice. In other words, if rent is due on the first day of the month, the landlord must give written notice to the tenant 21 days before the last day of the month. The law became effective on August 9, 2017.
The landlord is not required to give a reason for such lease termination. However, the landlord's reason for termination must be non-discriminatory.
