The COVID-19 pandemic has changed a lot of things, including whether landlords can demand payment from tenants who are behind on rent.

Eviction attorney Dylan Becker sheds some light on Colorado’s current executive order.

COVID-19 has changed a lot of things in the world of evictions and one of the most recent ones is Executive Order D-2020-101.

This executive order changes the requirements for and demand for rent, and this is in effect at least until July 13th, though it may be extended by further executive order.

Landlord Right to Demand Rent Changes

At its core, the requirements changed from what was previously a 10-day demand requirement to now what is a 30-day requirement.

So, as the expiration date for the executive order approaches, it may be worth asking whether or not it’s worth it to simply issue the 30-day demand right now or risk that the executive order would be extended and possibly wait until after the executive order expires and issue a 10-day.
