How to Get Rid of Bad Tenants – Denver Eviction Best Practices

Kathryn MacGeraghty - Wednesday, November 25, 2015

Today, we are talking about the eviction process in Colorado and what we have to do when we need to get rid of bad tenants or tenants who are not paying rent. Fortunately, we don’t have to evict very often. Most of our eviction experience comes from owners who need help with problem tenants. At Blue Sage Realty, we have not had to evict one of our own tenants in several years. We take pride in our tenant selection process. If you do a thorough tenant screening, you will be less likely to face problems and evictions.

Notice to Pay or Quit

The first step is to give the tenant a Notice to Pay or Quit. If the tenant does not pay the late rent within three days of that notice, we forward it to our attorneys. We work with some of the best eviction lawyers in Colorado, and they have a systemized procedure for evictions. This keeps the costs nominal. An eviction will cost about $250, and that includes attorney fees as well as court costs.

Court Date

The court date is set for a week or two after the posting. The court process is usually pretty open and shut – you simply have to demonstrate that the tenants have not paid rent as agreed. Once you have the judgment from the courts, it’s a good idea to go to the property and see if the tenants have already moved out on their own. If they have, the hardest work is done and you just have to get the property ready for a new renter. If they are still in the property, we send a writ to the county sheriff and make an appointment for help with a physical move out.

Physical Move Out

When we get an appointment with the sheriff, we usually bring a crew to help move out the furniture and personal items. Those things will be left on the curb or wherever the sheriff directs us to put them. This has to take an hour or less; the sheriff will not give us any additional time. As property managers, we need to decide how many people to hire for this process to get it done in that timeframe. Then, we clean up the property and get it back on the market. The entire eviction process takes about 30 days from the nonpayment of rent to the sheriff moving out the tenant. If you have any questions on how to handle this, please contact us at Blue Sage Realty, and we’d be happy to tell you more.

I guess, it could be nice to create some site related to the management education. It could be really useful for lots of people. commented on 18-Aug-2016 05:16 AM
I just do not want the tenants to move out! Thanks for the detailed description of the process

Those things will be left on the check or wherever the sheriff guides us to put them. This needs to take a hour or less; the sheriff won't give us any extra time.

I’m Torres Castro by name. I live in Colombia, i want to use this medium to alert all loan seekers to be very careful because there are scammers everywhere.Few months ago I was financially strained, and due to my desperation I was scammed by several online lenders. I had almost lost hope until a friend of mine referred me to a very reliable lender called Mrs.Mary Smart who lend me an unsecured loan of $85,000 under 2hours without any stress. If you are in need of any kind of loan just contact her now I‘m using this medium to alert all loan seekers because of the hell I passed through in the hands of those fraudulent lenders. And I don’t wish even my enemy to pass through such hell that I passed through in the hands of those fraudulent online lenders,i will also want you to help me pass this information to others who are also in need of a loan once you have also receive your loan from Mrs.Mary Smart, i pray that God should give her long life.

God bless her forever.
