Fair Housing

This brochure linked to below is designed to provide general information to the residents of the Pikes Peak Region about fair housing laws and practices and related landlord/tenant issues. It is divided into three sections.

  1. Explanation of the Fair Housing Act.
  2. Landlord/Tenant Information which provides information for both landlords and tenants regarding the rights and responsibilities of both parties.
  3. The Community Resources section contains a directory of useful local, state, and federal agencies.

While the information in the brochure is provided to help individuals avoid or resolve conflicts in the area of housing, the information contained herein is not, and cannot substitute for legal advice about a specific problem that you may be encountering.

Renter Rights

The Community Development Division is charged with preserving affordable housing, preventing homelessness, and improving struggling neighborhoods. By providing practical resources for renters, we help achieve these goals. Ensuring renters and landlords know their rights and responsibilities helps prevent unjust evictions, and keep people housed. 

In collaboration with community partners such as Colorado Legal Services, Pikes Peak Library District and The Justice Center, the Division provides workshops and materials to educate the public on renter rights.
