Legal Answers
232 Questions Answered

Q. Can Capital One take my land to pay off a defaulted auto loan if I cannot pay on it anymore?
A: No - It is not likely that you pledged real estate as collateral to obtain a credit card. However, if you have debt issues, I recommend that you contact a Bankruptcy attorney, you may be surprised how much BK can do for you.
Q. With a current month-to-month lease after lease expiration and couple separated, can I create new lease with one party?
A: Yes you can. Just properly terminate the current Month to Month before creating a new lease with only one party moving forward.
Q. I recently was charged a fee of $1000 for 3 days late Payment on a $4088 b’room remodel. Is this legal? Ursury? Colorado
A: Usury does apply to late fees in lease agreements. You may want to get an attorney to help you in dealing with this party. A demand letter from an attorney could help to convince the opposing party that this will not work out well for him/her.
Q. Hello! I am wondering if home builders in Colorado are required by law, to provide a 10 year structural warranty?
A: No but yes. Builders are not required to offer any warranty. But, a owner may bring suit against the builder under the Construction Defect Statute for defects for up to 10 years after completion of the home. Hope helps. You should contact an attorney if your builder is not cooperating with your demands for repairs.
Q. Can a landlord keep my inital rent and deposit when I never moved in because of someone else still occuping at time
A: If the previous tenant did not move out causing Landlord to be unable to deliver possession to you, he would be in breach of your lease agreement and have no right to your rent and Sec. Dep. You should contact an attorney for assistance in recovering your money.
Q. Can a landlord(s) transfer a lease to a Property Management Company without notifying the tenant in writing prior?
A: A landlord may designate an agent (Property Management Co) to step in and administer the lease on his behalf, unless the lease specifically says otherwise. It was smart of you to verify this transfer with the Landlord prior to delivering money to the Property Manager.
Q. Rent to own. Oral contract. Fully paid the property off now Parents getting divorce and father refuses to sign over
A: You may have some rights and remedies. I recommend that you contact an attorney to discuss the exact facts, agreements, evidence, willingness of Mom to cooperate, etc. Then you'll be able to make a decision about how to move forward in demanding your property.
Q. When purchasing a lot in a platted rural subdiv is an Improvement Location Cert. ok, or should require Land Plat Survey
A: Is a Land Plat Survey today valuable to defend encroachment claims in the future? Not likely. Is a Land Plat Survey more valuable to a buyer than an ILC? Yes
Q. We flipped a home 5 years ago, and 2 buyers later, the new buyer is suing us for shouty workmanship.
A: You should consult an attorney to assist you in defending yourself against these claims. There are likely other facts that need to be discussed but it is possible that you could make a claim against the Plaintiff for attorney fees to defend yourself against this lawsuit.
