The Colorado Revised Statutes Title 38, Article 12, Section 202 and 204.3 requires a mobile home tenancy to begin with a written lease or rental agreement that can only be terminated by a notice to quit in the following manner:
Written Agreement and Written Notice Required
No tenancy or other lease or rental occupancy of space in a mobile home park shall commence without a written lease or rental agreement, and no tenancy in a mobile home park shall be terminated until a notice to quit has been served. Said notice to quit shall be in writing and in the form specified in section 13-40-107 (2), C.R.S. The property description required in section 13-40-107 (2), C.R.S., shall be deemed legally sufficient if it states:
- The name of the landlord or the mobile home park;
- The mailing address of the property;
- The location or space number upon which the mobile home is situate; and
- The county in which the mobile home is situate.
Note: Service by posting shall be deemed legally sufficient if the notice is affixed to the main entrance of the mobile home.
10, 30, or 60 Day Notice Required
The home owner shall be given a period of not less than sixty days to remove any mobile home from the premises from the date the notice is served or posted. In those situations where a mobile home is being leased to, or occupied by, persons other than its owner and in a manner contrary to the rules and regulations of the landlord, then in that event, the tenancy may be terminated by the landlord upon giving a thirty-day notice rather than said sixty-day notice.
If the tenancy is terminated on grounds specified in section 38-12-203 (1)(f), the home owner shall be given a period of not less than ten days to remove any mobile home from the premises from the date the notice is served or posted.
Reason for Termination and the Right to Cure
The landlord or management of a mobile home park shall specify, in the notice required by this section, the reason for the termination, as described in the section Colorado Mobile Home Tenancy Reasons for Termination, of any tenancy in such mobile home park. If the tenancy is being terminated based on the mobile home or mobile home lot being out of compliance with the rules and regulations adopted pursuant to section 38-12-203 (1)(c), the notice required by this section shall include a statement advising the home owner that the home owner has a right to cure the noncompliance within thirty days of the date of service or posting of the notice to quit. The thirty-day period to cure any noncompliance set forth in this subsection (3) shall run concurrently with the sixty-day period to remove a mobile home from the premises as set forth in paragraph (c) of subsection (1) and subsection (2) of this section. Acceptance of rent by the landlord or management of a mobile home park during the thirty-day right to cure period set forth in section 38-12-203 (1)(c) shall not constitute a waiver of the landlord’s right to terminate the tenancy for any noncompliance set forth in section 38-12-203 (1)(c).
