Are You in Compliance with the New Rental Application Fairness Law?
In 2019, the Colorado legislature passed House Bill 1106, known as the Rental Application Fairness Act, into law. All landlords and property managers are required to comply with the requirements of HB 1106.
Under Colorado state law, landlords that charge rental application fees must follow strict procedures related to disclosure, receipt, and usage of the application fee. If a landlord denies a rental application, the landlord must also provide the prospective tenant a written notice of denial that states the reasons for the denial.
