A Colorado Rental Application is a form used by Colorado landlords and/or property managers to gather information regarding potential tenants. Both landlords and property managers must observe state and federal law when seeking new tenants. This means that a tenant may be rejected for items such as bad credit history or an established reputation for paying rent late with previous landlords. However, it is illegal for landlords to reject a potential tenant due to  physical or mental disability as this would violate the Federal Fair Housing Act of 1968.


  • Application Fee  – Landlords can charge tenants any amount  so long as the entire fee is used to cover the actual costs incurred by the landlord. This fee must be consistent with the amounts charged to other prospective tenants ( § 38-12-903 ).
  • Security Deposit  – There is  no limit  to the amount a landlord may request as a security deposit (no statutes).
