Until either Colorado or a Federal law passes to put a freeze on rent and mortgage payments, this is what the the CAA is suggesting for landlords.

The Colorado Apartment Association recommends that its members take the following steps through April 30, 2020:

  • Create payment plans for residents unable to pay rent because of virus related loss of income
  • Waive all late fees through April 30,2020
  • Refrain from enforcing eviction orders with move-outs through April 30, 2020
  • Avoid rent increases
  • Share the Colorado Housing Financial Assistance Programs and Apartment Association of Metro Denver’s list of resources for renters
  • Limit entry to rental properties to only emergency maintenance response
  • Follow HIPPA federal rules for resident and employee privacy if a community has a positive test
  • Increase common area cleaning with the approved list of cleaning supplies from the CDC
  • Continue to follow the Governor’s mandate for reduced workplace staff and continue to follow the CDC guidelines for social distancing
  • Maintain emergency maintenance needs for renters
