Under Denver Revised Municipal Code (DRMC) 27-201 and Colorado Revised Statutes (CRS) 13-40-104, landlords must provide written notice of tenants’ rights and resources document, both at the time of executing a required written lease and any time the owner or operator makes a rent demand. This includes when a tenant signs a new lease or renews an existing lease.

There are penalties for noncompliance, so landlords should determine how to comply and be able to show proof of compliance if needed.

The Denver Department of Housing Stability (HOST) has updated the tenants’ rights and resources document. The documents in English and Spanish have been posted to our website.

There is also a new “Renter’s Housing Handbook: A Guide for Denver Landlords and Tenants.” This guide summarizes the rights and obligations of residential landlords and tenants as of Jan. 1, 2024. It does not constitute legal advice and is intended to serve only as a general guide. Versions in English and Spanish are posted on our website.

Share this message with any other stakeholders and encourage them to sign up for the residential rental property informational bulletin to receive news and updates as they become available.
