Landlord Tenant Handbook, Landlord/Tenant

Landlord/Tenant Handbook


Introduction and Philosophy

The Rental Property Handbook for Landlords and Tenants meant to serve as an information guide, and is not intended to be used as a substitute for seeking legal advice from an attorney.

Tenants have legal rights. However at times tenants are not knowledgeable about these rights and how to legally protect these rights. The same can be said about landlords, as they have legal rights and may not be as knowledgeable as they should.

Most Landlord/Tenant problems can be solved by communicating between the landlord and tenant. When a solution cannot be worked out, our office offers Longmont residents mediation or you may wish to consult an attorney for legal advice or counsel.
