CDC EVICTION MORATORIUM INFORMATION

The CDC Eviction Moratorium is currently in effect. This order prevents the residential evictions of covered persons for failure to pay rent. It expires on June 30, 2021. If your Landlord or Property Manager has provided you with a Rent Demand (also known as a Notice to Quit or 10 Day Demand), it is imperative that you complete the “EVICTION DECLARATION FORM” (provided in both English and Spanish on the below link) and serve a copy to your landlord.

10 DAY DEMAND NOTICE ADVICE

If you have received a Rent Demand (or Notice to Quit), please make sure to include it with your application. By sending us the demand we know to escalate your file and will try our best to expedite only if your application is complete.

To apply, please call 303-837-1313 or visit https://colsoi.legalserver.org/modules/matter/extern_intake.php?pid=129&h=daa817& and complete the online intake form.
