In Colorado, evictions are sometimes referred to as “Forcible Entry & Detainer” (FED). Like in other states, Colorado landlords and property managers must follow all the rules and regulations set forth by state law when evicting a tenant. Otherwise, the eviction process will fail.
A landlord who engages in any conduct outside the judicial process such as threatening the tenant, taking the tenant’s personal belongings, terminating essential services or utilities, or locking out the tenant may be liable to the tenant for any damages incurred.
