Roommate/Rental Laws for the state of Colorado
Asked Feb 16, 2009, 08:09 PM
I moved in 2 weeks ago to my boyfriend's home for the rental of $500.00/month. As it turns out he seems to have 2 different personalities and he is kicking me out of his home after I had the deadbolt and regular lock locked when he tried to enter. He got so pissed that he kicked the door down before I could answer it and ruined his door. He said I needed to leave immediately and also pay for the door. He said I was deliberately locking him out when in fact it is just a habit to lock the doors for me. Obviously I do want to leave asap but have nowhere to go now. He said he was going to change the locks tomorrow so I wouldn't have a key to get in. All of my things are here and I don't know what to do. What are my rights if any. We did not have a written rental agreement. All I have is documentation that I kept of the money that was exchanged for the rent and money that he has borrowed and not returned. I've only been here 2 weeks. Any thoughts?
Thank you for your time in this matter.
