A Landlord’s Use of Credit Record, Rental History, & Criminal Record

In 2019 Colorado passed a law concerning application fees for prospective tenants. We link directly to the legislation for the bill (HB19-1106) so you can get the facts yourself. This new law made it illegal for a landlord to charge a prospective tenant a fee for an application that is more than the actual amount it costs the landlord to conduct the service. THE BILL ALSO INCLUDES LANGUAGE ABOUT CRIMINAL RECORDS, CREDIT HISTORIES, AND RENTAL HISTORIES! Landlords may not consider any rental or credit history beyond 7 years immediately preceding the date of an application. Landlords may also not consider an arrest record from any time, AND may not consider ANY conviction that occurred more than 5 years before the date of the application EXCEPT for convictions and deferred judgments involving methamphetamine, the requirement to register as a sex offender, and any offense classified as homicide or stalking.
