Landlord License Requirement

After years of rising complaints, Denver is working to make rental units safer. If you own an apartment building, duplex, or single-family residence in Denver and rent it out long term (more than 30+ consecutive days), you need a residential rental license. Short-term rentals (1 to 29 days) also require a license in Denver. Make sure you’re in compliance.

Updated Tenant’s Rights

Think you don’t have a lot of rights as a renter? Wrong! You have many rights, including habitability and a minimum standard of your home. Learn about your tenant rights in Denver.
