The Colorado House of Representatives has passed HB19-1118, which would extend the time period for tenants to cure lease violations, including nonpayment of rent, from three to ten days. The bill passed on a 38 to 26 vote, and remains to be passed in the senate.
If enacted, the law would require that landlords provide tenants with ten days to cure defaults in rent payments and other lease violations when posting demands for compliance or possession. This would apparently extend the general timeframe of a typical eviction by one additional week, while also, if the bill’s sponsors are correct, increasing the likelihood that a tenant will be able to cure the violation and avoid an eviction becoming necessary.
