Description

Complaint in Forcible Entry and Detainer: This is an official form from the Colorado State Judicial Branch, which complies with all applicable laws and statutes. This form is used to initiate an eviction lawsuit against an unwanted tenant after the proper notice to quit has been served. USLF amends and updates the forms as is required by Colorado statutes and law.

A forcible entry and detainer is an action that a landlord, or new property owner can take if the existing occupant refuses to leave after appropriate notice. This occupant could be either a tenant or original owner of property that was sold at a foreclosure or trustee's sale. The laws governing forcible entry and detainer actions are different if the property is residential or non-residential.

The tenant/occupant must receive a written demand to vacate the property. The term of the period to vacate is dictated by the type of occupancy - whether commercial or residential and whether a tenant or a owner that was foreclosed on. This term normally is either 5 or 7 days, unless the contract states otherwise. After the 5-7 days expire and the tenant/occupant still refuse to leave then a complaint for a forcible detainer action can be filed. The statutes provide for a short notice period before a court hearing. The sole issue at the court hearing is whether or not the tenant/occupant has the right to possession. If they do not then they will be found guilty of a forcible entry and detainer.
