New Denver Landlord Licences Require Passing a Home Inspection

In an effort to hold landlords responsible for providing safe living spaces for their tenants, The City and County of Denver have new licensing requirements for property managers. One of the main steps of this licensing program is that each rental property be required to pass an inspection by a qualified, third-party inspector. Andy Rhodes, CEO of Colorado Complete Inspections (CCI), states, “An experienced inspection like CCI will walk you through the entire process from start to finish to make the fulfilling the licensing requirements as smooth as possible.”

The house inspection includes these main steps:

  • Step 1: Work through the pre-inspection checklist to prepare for the inspection

  • Step 2: Complete the inspection and receive a detailed list of needed fixes

  • Step 3: Request reinspection after needed fixes are completed

  • Step 4: Pass the inspection and obtain the documentation required for licensing

At the start of January 2023, a license is required for anyone renting a property consisting of two or more rental dwelling units on a single parcel. Starting Jan. 1, 2024, a license will be required for rental properties consisting of one or more rental dwelling units on a single parcel. Licenses will need to be renewed once every four years unless there is a change in ownership.
