Create a high quality document online now!

The Colorado 10-Day Notice to Quit (Non-Payment & Non-Compliance), otherwise referred to as a written demand, is a real estate document used to serve a tenant in default of either not paying rent on time or some other violation of the lease. The tenant will have 10 days to either pay rent owed or move out. Serving this written demand is the landlord’s first step to regaining possession of their property.

It is important that the landlord keeps a copy of the written demand in the event that the tenant fails to comply with the written demand. A copy will be needed if the landlord files an eviction lawsuit in court. If the tenant complies and moves out within 10 days but fails to pay the unpaid rent, by law the landlord has the right to use the tenant’s security deposit towards the unpaid rent.
