Landlord Tenant Handbook, Landlord/Tenant
Introduction and Philosophy
The Property Manager's Handbook is meant to serve as an information guide, and is not intended to be used as a substitute for seeking legal advice from an attorney or other qualified professionals.
THIS IS NOT A LEGAL DOCUMENT
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 in person or by telephone; 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.
If you cannot afford legal counsel, the Boulder County Legal Services may be able to help you. Call 303-449-7575 for further information. (you must qualify financially)
If the problem is not of a legal nature, but of a possible building code infraction, contact the Longmont Building Inspection office by calling 303-651-4332.
