Please contact these select Senators below and ask them to VOTE NO on SB 185!
This new bill aims to:
Expand the definition of a violation of the Warranty of Habitability.
·This bill would undo several months of negotiation that took place ONLY 17 MONTHS AGO.
·Those negotiations cost the taxpayers of Colorado upwards of $20,000 for mediation.
·This bill REMOVES KEY COMPONENTS that were negotiated to achieve a balanced policy for all parties involved after five years of work.
- If a warranty of habitability case goes to court, it allows the court to
quickly resolve the notice issue. This allows the court to focus on
the real issues of determining whether a breach of the warranty of
habitability occurred and how a breach should be cured.
- SB 185 places greater strain on the court system through INJUNCTIVE RELIEF and
broadens the definition of a violation of Warranty of Habitability. By
allowing the tenant to obtain injunctive relief in county courts, including
small claims courts, this bill will generate more traffic in our court
THIS EQUATES TO FREE RENT! If an injunctive relief is given to the tenant that
is going through the eviction process, an injunction will slow the eviction. During
the legal process the tenant remains in their apartment until the legal
process is finished....without paying rent.
